In the present work the results of observations of the condition of the phytobenthos of the Novosibirsk Reservoir in 1959 -- the first year of its complete flooding -- are given. The selection of samples of the bottom and of encrustations was made during monthly trips. In all, 120 samples of the bottom and 60 of encrustations were examined. Among the latter were encrustations from stumps, stumps with roots, floating trees, rafts, submerged plants and objects introduced into the water by man poles of wooden bridges, landings, buoys, underwater parts of a cutter. Floating filamentous algae were also collected. In addition, about 100 intestines of tendipedid water larvae were examined the presence of algae was demonstrated in them. A cell count was made by the five-plus system.
