ABSTRACT

Bioindication characteristics of algae were used in assessing the ecological state of 12 ponds of Kiev located within the territory of the Goloseyevo National Natural Park. Results of the ecological analysis have shown that planktonic-benthic and planktonic organisms were represented by the largest number of species. Algal species - indicators of slowly flowing and moderately warm waters, and also indifferent organisms in relation to pH and water salinity prevailed in phytoplankton of the studied ponds. Among diatoms - indicators of the type of nutrition, nitrogen-autotrophic taxa tolerating elevated concentrations of organically bound nitrogen were represented by the largest number of species. Eurysaprobes and β-mesosaprobionts predominated among the indicators of organic contamination, whereas eutraphentic organisms-among the indicators of the trophic state. It has been found that the Orekhovatka ponds were contaminated by organic matter and nutrients most.
