Diatoms in a peatbog polluted with oil-field brines in the Kolva River basin, Komi Republic

  • A. S. Stenina


The first data about the diatoms of phytobenthos and epiphyton in water biotopes of a peatbog in the Kolva River basin (a tributary of the Pechora River) polluted by oil-field brines are reported. As a total, 49 species with varieties and forms from 14 genera and 9 families have been found. Dominating complexes of communities with halophilic diatoms have been revealed. The ecology of the species resistant to mineral pollution is discussed.
