Alien species of Lake Kenon (Transbaikal Region)

Abstract

The article reviews invasive species of Lake Kenon, which is used as a cooling pond of the Chita TPP-1. During the period from 1919 to 2011, 11 alien species of hydrobionts were discovered in the lake. In 2009, Gnathopogon mantschuricus and the hydrophytic Elodea canadensis Mich. were registered for the first time.
