This paper describes the planktonic diatom flora of Lake Çıldır. Samples were collected monthly between May 1991 and September 1993 at three different stations. A total of 94 diatom taxa were identified. In the study period, the most dominant and abundant taxa were Cyclotella meneghiniana Kütz., Aulacoseria granulata (Ehrenb.) Simonsen, Melosira varians C.Agardh and Navicula Bory spp. The diatom flora of the lake is rich in species and varieties and is similar to that in other parts of Turkey.
