Institute of Hydrobiology National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine Kiev, Ukraine


Species composition and quantitative development of algae growing on solid inorganic substrates were studied in two reservoirs of the Dnieper cascade. In total, 157 and 197 species were found in the Kanev and Kremenchug reservoirs, respectively. Green weight of periphytic algae ranged from 100 to 8000 g/m2. A conclusion was made that periphytic algae can be used to monitor the ecological state of the Dnieper reservoirs.
