ABSTRACT
The article examines the potential effect of organic solvents on natural phytoplankton assemblages. Solvents used in the experiments included ethanol, dimethyl sulfoxide, dimethyl formamide, and methanol. Results showed that composition or diversity of the phytoplankton communities treated with ethanol is low compared to the control group. While diversity in methanol treatments is close to ethanol treatment and diversity in dimethyl sulfoxide and dimethyl formamide treatments is close to control group.
