Abstract: The main aim of the present research was study the “Diversity of Macro invertebrates in Kunda reservoir District Dhar M.P.” There are 36 species of Zoobenthos and other fauna were identified from the entire four studied site viz; Rajrajeshwar temple, Outlet channel, Kunda village and Feeder channel during 2012 (January 2012- December 2012). There are 6 species of Phylum Arthropods (Class- Crustacea) were identified, there are 10 species of aquatic insects were identified which belongs to different family. Macrozoobenthic invertebrate are diverse group of long lived species that react strongly to human influences in aquatic ecosystem. However, now a day, a macrozoobenthic invertebrate based biotic index has been proposed to evaluate water quality in freshwater river streams.
