An algofloristic study of water bodies of various types in the Hula Valley (Northern Israel) was carried out. A total of 136 species (154 infraspecific taxa) belonging to Cyanophyta, Dinophyta, Euglenophyta, Chlorophyta and Bacillariophyta were found, including 17 species (21 infraspecific taxa) first reported for Israel. Species diversity was represented by Chlorophyta (63 taxa), Cyanophyta (42 taxa), and Bacillariophyta (33 taxa). Variation in distribution of algae was noted in different water bodies. Common species, including those causing water blooms, were found.
