Abstract

By analogy with other large tropical and sub-tropical river systems, such as the Nile, a development of phytoplankton could be expected in the Tigris-Euphrates. Its reality was indicated by casual observations of Al-Hamed (1966), who mentioned (with detail of localities or species) a diatomdominated phytoplankton derived mainly from the genera Synedra, Tabellaria, Melosira, Cyclotella and Fragilaria.
