Biotopic Distribution of Naked Amoebas (Protista) in Ukrainian Polissya Area

Forty-one species of naked amoebas were found in the different types of waterbodies of Zhytomyr and Volyn' parts of Ukrainian Polissya region. The major part of species of naked amoebas in this region demonstrated the prevalence to living in a certain type of water body that possible depends on the hydrochemical and trophic parameters of water. The limnetic and floodplain species complexes of amoebas are distinguished in Ukrainian Polissya.
