In this publication the eutrophication level of Kozlowa Gora dam reservoir base on composition species of algae and biomass of phytoplankton, was defined. The evaluation of phytoplankton biomass was achieved by two methods (direct - for biovolume by comparing the shape of algae to geometrical figures and indirect - base on concentrations of chlorophyll a). The trophic estimation of reservoir water was achieved on the grounds of classifications, which included the boundary values of phytoplankton biomass and concentrations of chlorophyll a. These boundary values are characteristic for individual trophic types of water. The typical species for eutrophic water were observed in the samples of water taking from the Kozlowa Gora dam reservoir, also the highest average percentage share of Cyanophyta in whole biomass of phytoplankton was observed (it may indicate on the advanced eutrophication processes). The research concerning the average biomass of phytoplankton and average concentrations of chlorophyll a allowed classification water of this reservoir to eutrophic and hipertrophic.
W artykule określono stopień zeutrofizowania zbiornika Kozłowa Góra w oparciu o skład gatunkowy i biomasę fitoplanktonu. Oceny biomasy fitoplanktonu dokonano za pomocą dwóch metod (bezpośredniej - na zasadzie przyrównywania komórek do figur geometrycznych i pośredniej - chlorofilowej). W ocenie trofii wód zbiornika wykorzystano klasyfikację uwzględniającą graniczne wartości wielkości biomasy fitoplanktonu oraz graniczne wartości stężeń chlorofilu a dla poszczególnych typów troficznych. W próbkach wody pobranych ze zbiornika Kozłowa Góra zanotowano rozwój gatunków typowych dla wód eutroficznych, a także duży udział w ogólnej biomasie fitoplanktonu sinic (co może wskazywać na zaawansowanie procesów eutrofizacyjnych). Badania dotyczące średniej biomasy fitoplanktonu (określanej bezpośrednio i pośrednio) pozwoliły na zaklasyfikowanie zbiornika do eutroficznych, a nawet hipertroficznych.
