Algal samples were collected from 52 wetlands in eastern South Dakota during summer, 1984. In this study, 20 wetland types were sampled using the classification of Cowardian et al. (1979). Seven of the 20 habitat types were compared statistically. the algal taxonomic composition in all but two differed significantly form each other. Water chemistry parameterscould be statistically compared within three habitat types. Significantly different algal taxa were present in different pH and conductivity ranges but not alkalinity ranges. Algal taxa are listed with their percent frequency of occurance in lacustrine, palustrine and riverine habitat types sampled.
