Phytobenthos cyanobacteria species new to Lithuanian rivers [Naujos Lietuvos upėms fitobentoso melsvabakterių rūšys]

Abstract A total of 23 new to Lithuania cyanobacteria species were recorded in phytobenthos of 70 rivers in 2009–2011. New species belong to the Chroococcales and Oscillatoriales orders, 10 families and 12 genera. Descriptions of species morphology and original photos are presented; cyanobacteria’s ecological groups and distributions are analysed. The paper contains information about the possibility of employment of new species as indicators for the assessment of ecological status of Lithuanian rivers.
