Present investigation deals with the distribution of Physico-chemical and Mycological parameters of Upstream River Ganga (Bithoor) at Kanpur during the year of (January, 2009 – December, 2010). The water quality declined due to bathing, domestic, municipal and industrial waste from various areas of town which directly or indirectly affects the biotic community of the river. The mean values (± SD) of different Physico-chemical parameters like, Temperature, pH, DO, BOD, Total Alkalinity, Chloride, EC, TDS, Total Hardness, Phosphate, Turbidity and Nitrate observed, Different types of fungi isolated from upstream river Ganga. The total 31 fungal species were isolated belong to 19 genera.
