ABSTRACT
The phytoplankton composition of Sazlidere Dam lake was studied at 5 sampling sites between December 2003 - November 2005. A total of 67 taxa were recorded, representing Bacillariophyta (31), Chlorophyta (18), Cyanophyta (9), Chrysophyta (1), Cryptophyta (1), Dinophyta (3) and Euglenophyta (4). Bacillariophyta members constituted the dominant phytoplankton group in terms of species number. Nygaard’s compound index value and composition of phytoplankton indicate that the trophic state of Sazlidere Dam lake was changing from oligotrophic to mesotrophic.
