Distribution of Periphyton Algae of the Dnieper Reservoirs Depending on the Type of Substratum

It has been found that the distribution of periphyton algae of the Dnieper reservoirs depends to a large extent on the type of substratum. Algae communities differing in their species composition, number of species, floristic spectra, spectra of leading families and genera, dominant species, and in the intensity of their development are formed on substrata of different types (solid artificial inorganic substratum, higher aquatic plants, and green filamentous algae). It has been shown that individual taxonomic groups of algae prefer a specified type of substratum.
