Abstract

The major structural characteristics of zooplankton communities that inhabit 35 Arctic lakes in the catchment basin of the Anabar River (Yakutia) have been analyzed. The ecological state of the lakes has been evaluated. The structure-forming abiotic factors that have the greatest influence on the formation of zooplankton communities have been revealed using the indirect ordination method.
