This paper describes the planktonic diatom flora of the Sultan Sazlığı marshes, Kayseri. Samples were collected systematically from the marshes over a period of 1.5 years from three stations. The diatom flora of Sultan Sazlığı is rich in terms of species and varieties, which are similar to those from many parts of Turkey. A total of 75 taxa of diatoms were identified. The diversity of species at freshwater stations was higher, than that of the brackish water station. Genera such as Fragilaria Lyngb., Navicula, Gomphonema Ehrenb., Nitzschia Hassall, Epithemia Bréb. ex Kütz. were dominant in species numbers.
