ABSTRACT

Analysis and generalization of the data available in literature on the species composition and distribution of algae of the order Charales in water bodies of Ukraine are presented. The revealed species composition (38 species) is rather rich. Among these taxa, 32 species occur in other parts of Europe. Six species are not represented in Europe. The natural physiographic zones of the Ukraine in respect to of Charales are investigated non-uniformly: there are 24 species known for the Steppe zone, 21 species for Ukrainian Polesye, 14 for the Forest-Steppe, 7 for the Mountain Crimea, 6 for the Ukrainian Carpathians, and 9 species for the freshened (brackish-water) gulfs and bays of the Black Sea.
