ABSTRACT
Planktonic and non-planktonic (periphytic or benthic) diatom taxa of the lakes and river around the Kumho District in North Korea were categorized to compare among and between four communities (planktonic, epilithic, epipsammic and epiphytic). Two hundred and seventy-one diatom taxa were recorded through 22 samples and the important taxa were classified and ordinated according to their living media or substrata. The important taxa were almost saproxenous, mesosaprobic or relatively sensitive to pollution tolerance. forty-five diatom taxa were first recorded in Korea.
Key words: DCA ordination, North Korea, nuclear power station, planktonic and periphytic diatom taxa, substrata
