SHORT COMMUNICATIONS Specific Anatomical Features of Vegetative Organs in Some Macrophyte Species under Conditions of Industrial Pollution O. A. Kapitonova Udmurt State University, Universitetskaya ul. 1, Izhevsk, 426034 Russia Received February 28, 2000 Key words: plants, epidermis structure, industrial pollution. In contrast to terrestrial plants, aquatic and riparian– The plants as the objects of study were chosen aquatic plants have rarely been studied with special according to the principles formulated by Nikolishin regard to speciﬁc features of their anatomical structure (1978). Their essence is that biological objects for the in an anthropogenically altered environment, although purposes of indication should be chosen taking into some macrophytes are actively used in ecological account both structural characters (biomass, represen- investigations. The ecological state of water bodies is tativeness, and the frequency of occurrence in different usually estimated from changes in some population, biogeocenoses) and functional characters (the dynam- biological, and physiological parameters of plants. The ics of accumulation of toxic agents, life span, and bio- parameters used in most studies include biomass incre- logical productivity).
