Abstract

Landikotal is an area mostly consists of hilly tracks, mountains and narrow strips of valleys. It is the meeting place of high ranges of mountain such as the Koh-e-Safaid, and outcome of the mighty Hindukush Mountains. The taxonomic studies of family Osscillatoriaceae from tehsil Landikotal, District Khyber, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan was carried out to find out the diversity of family Osscillatoriacea which contains 2 Genera and 9 Species that includes Oscillatoria terebriformis, Osscillatoria tenuis, Osscillatoria splendid, Osscillatoria Formosa, Osscillatoria prolifica, Osscillatoria amoena, Osscillatoria saneta, Lyngbya  kashyapii and lyngbya martensian.
