This paper presents the results of a study of diatoms from the sediments in headwaters of the river Pavlovka (K-EL007). The diatom taxonomic composition, ecological structure and their quantitative content were analyzed. 120 diatom species belonging to 38 genera were ideated. The data allowed to allocate 7 ecozones. The changes revealed in the ecological structure of the spore-pollen spectra and diatoms paleo-community allowed to assume during what time these sediments were formed and under what climatic conditions.
