ABSTRACT

It has been found that in the upper reaches of the river the number of algal species and chlorophyll α concentration were higher, whereas the physiological state of algae (based on Margalef index) was better than related indices registered in the lower reaches of the river. These indices correlated with the pH, transparency of water, and content of dissolved oxygen in water.
