Abstract: Population pattern of freshwater benthic molluscan population in a freshwater lake has been studied. Monthly data collected in five sites based on depth gradient have been subjected to statistical interpretation to analyse the community structure and population pattern, interspecific associationship and spatial similarity and dissimilarity for the malacofauna Molluscs are known for their spatial random/ non-random distribution and that certainly helped the purpose of the work.
