The results of a two-year study on summer vegetation in the «Swan Islands» reserve are presented. In the littoral area of the Karkinit Bay and in two of its estuaries, 47 species of macrophytes belonging to three divisions of algae and to Magnoliophyta were revealed. Peculiarities of taxonomic and ecological structure of benthic algocenoeses inhabiting firm substrates are analyzed according to the type of water body and year of observation.
