Comparative Characteristics of Phytoplankton of Different Water Bodies of Iran

Data on phytoplankton of various water bodies of Iran are given in the paper. On the whole, 473 species (525 infraspecific taxa) of algae were found in rivers, 495 (548) − in reservoirs, 144 (160) − in lakes, 285 (299) − in swamps, and 293 species (320 infraspecific taxa) − in ponds. Among them, 259 infraspecific taxa were plankton organisms and 258 infraspecific taxa − plankton and benthos organisms. The obtained data were compared and analyzed. The complex of leading taxa was represented by 19 genera, among which 6 genera were typically plankton forms, whereas 7 genera were plankton and benthos forms. The species composition of phytoplankton of various water bodies was compared using the overlap method.
