This study is devoted to the analysis of the distribution of heavy metals in the aquatic system of the Barguzin River. This is one of the largest rivers of the Baikal lake system. The element composition of the aerial scion of Potamogeton pectinatus L. (syn. Stukenia pectinata (L.) Borner), Potamogeton perfoliatus L., Hippuris vulgaris L. and Nymphoides peltata (S.G. Gmelin) O. Kuntze of the Barguzin River is studied in this research. One of the main results of the study is the establishment of the following sequence of the accumulation of metals in aquatic plants: Mn > Fe > Сu (Zn) > Сr > Ni > Сo > Pb > Cd > Hg. Hippuris vulgaris L. contains the highest concentration of the studied metals. Thus, this research provides one of the important steps for the development of regional environmental standards and environmental risk assessments.
