Salinity was the important factor that determined the composition of diatoms in the five separate wetlands of the Salt Lake Basin. Diatoms were divided into six groups with 40 taxa belonging to freshwater forms, 19 to freshwater-brackish, 21 to brackish, 9 to brackish-saline, and 16 to saline forms. Also, 45 taxa with a wide range of tolerance for salinity were identified.
