ABSTRACT

The elements of zooplankton energetic balance in the estuarine section of the Vita River (the Dnieper River basin) were studied in the thickets of macrophytes and in the sections free of vegetation. The role of various taxonomic and trophic groups was determined. The contribution of zooplankton to the energetic balance of the ecosystem of the estuarine section of the Vita River was investigated in the years differing in water level.
