Similar result to the registered in the present study was verified by Araujo and Costa (2007) that observed a great contribution of Euglenida order for the species richness in reservoirs from Brazilian semiarid region due to the enrichment of the environments by organic matter.
The Euglenida Order was responsible for this great richness, because it contributed with 65% from the total identified species.
In the same way, the species composition also presented only seasonal alterations, among these; we should stress the increase in the contribution of Euglenida Order and the decrease in the contribution of Chromulinales, Gymnodyniales and Peridiniales Orders in all regions during the winter.
