Subject and Keywords:

macrophytes ; plant biomass ; inflow and outflow littoral


Species structure and biomass of macrophytes were analyzed in lake-river transitory zones along transects extending water courses. It was stated that at the place of stream's inflow, the lake's littoral was longer by about 50%, had a more gentle inclination of bottom slope, was more species-diversified and was marked for a greater biomass of macrophytes than outflow littoral of the lake.
