In tropical estuarine waters, the centric species, Melosira nummuloides, and the pennate genera, Navicula and Amphora, have been reported to be the dominant forms encountered on SS surfaces [20, 43].

Only a few studies are reported dealing with diatom flora of Lakes in Pakistan (Leghari et al., 1986, 1999, 2000, 2005; Munir et al., 2012).The objective of this paper was to record the diversity of pennate diatoms in the Kallar Kahar Lake and its tributaries.
Because the resulting bands of large and small pennate diatoms yielded N-isotopic values similar to that of the bulk diatom sample, centrifuging was not conducted routinely.
The algal community is thus delimited to a few species capable of exploiting these extreme conditions (Devercelli, 2010), which are usually small unicellular pennate diatoms and desmids (Reynolds, 2006; Soares et al., 2007).

Most muscle groups that are tested in humans are pennate (with the exception of the biceps brachii).
They are divided into two main groups: centric and pennate. Centric forms have valves showing radial symmetry, and oogamous reproduction.
Pennate diatoms that could not be identified to species at 400x were identified as naviculoids.
Similar results indicating the beneficial effects of diatoms were observed by Moss & Pruder (1995) with the use of pennate and centric diatoms, which improved growth of L.
