DOI : 10.4194/TRJFAS19319 Viewed : 713 - Downloaded : 798 Turkish lakes which have different morphometry and hydrology, have a great potential that supports distinct algal diversity as a result of different climate types and geographical variation (latitudinal, longitudinal, and altitudinal gradients). However, the algal flora of Turkey has not been completed, and the number of new taxa has increased due to new studies in Turkey. This study aims to describe new planktonic algal taxa for the Turkish freshwater algal flora. A total of 330 Chlorophyta, 164 Cyanobacteria and 187 Euglenozoa taxa were determined in a study conducted from 2017 to 2019 in 275 lakes of 25 river basins of Turkey. During this study, 116 Chlorophyta, 41 Cyanobacteria, and 81 Euglenozoa were found new records for the freshwater algal flora of Turkey. Keywords : Phytoplankton Taxonomy First record Lakes Turkey
