Abstract

Diversity of stoneworts in watercourses (streams, rivers) of Vologda region is examined for the first time, namely Chara aspera, C. globularis, C. virgata, C. vulgaris, Nitella flexilis, N. mucronata, 6 species in total. The article presents data of their localities, distribution, ecology and biology. The composition of river representatives is 2 times poorer than in waterbodies (lakes, reservoirs, etc.) of the region. It is not characterized by originality and includes species growing in stagnant waters and having the widest ecological range.
