of Mongolian Diatoms
in Nova Hedwigia.
checklist contains 547 diatom taxa, representing 82 genera that have been
reported from Mongolia. It represents nearly 100 years of published
and new research on Mongolia's diatom flora, the results of which have
not been widely distributed to international audiences. Mongolia has a
great variety of aquatic habitats including rivers, springs, soil, and
freshwater and saline lakes, and diatom distribution in Mongolia is strongly
related to water chemistry and microhabitat. The checklist is organized
in alphabetical order by genus and species using current nomenclature.
The genera are split into categories as follows:
to F, G to P, and Q
to Z. You may also choose an individual letter to view the genera
entries are taxonomic synonyms previously used in the literature to refer
to the Mongolian flora. This checklist has been submitted as a manuscript
where 31 of the diatoms were reported as new distributions from Mongolia.
Six nomina nuda from the literature
are given at the end of the checklist.
