The phytoplankton community was investigated at two stations during 16 cruises on Lake Terkos from May 2000 to July 2001. During 2000-2001, a total of 78 phytoplankton taxa was encountered in quantitative samples. Seventy-two taxa from station 1, and 61 taxa from station 2 were identified. The maximum amount of biomass was formed in station 1 by Synedra acus Kütz. and Ceratium furca (Ehr.) Clap, et Lachm., in station 2 the maximum amount was achieved by species S. acus and Synedra ulna (Nitzsch.) Ehr. The phytoplankton biomass was strongly dominated by diatoms (Cyclotella pseudostelligera Hust, S. acus, Navicula gracillis Ehr., Asterionella formosa Hass. and S. ulna Cryptophyceae members (Cryptomonas erosa Ehr. and C. ovata Ehr.). The maximum biomass value was 1091.6 and 361.4 mg−3 at station 1 and 2 in Lake Terkos.
