The analysis of the taxonomic diversity of bacterial and mycelial communities in the rivers located within oilfields in Khanty-Mansi autonomous okrugUgra is carried out. 16 bacterial cultures and 4 cultures of mycelial microflora were identified among isolated microorganisms. The qualitative composition of the microbiota of the rivers depends on the location of the river, the anthropogenic load intensity, the hydrological season, which is explained by surface runoffs from the catchment area, as well as the beginning of navigation period.
