ABSTRACT

The results of the study of free-living plankton Ciliata occurring in steppe lakes of the Baikal area and Mongolia are presented. It has been found that free-living Ciliata are not diverse in their species composition, whereas their species structure is ecologically non-uniform. Polydominant communities prevail.
