With the field work coming to a timely end, we become more infatuated with the beauties Mount Kozuf has to offer. Holding great еnthusiasm and ambition towards scientific exploration, we decided to delve into the well hidden water bodies of the mountainous region. A large number of microscopic slides were prepared for laboratory analyses which are due for microscopic identification. According to prior results from research at these locations, we expect this analysis to find new and/or rare species of diatoms for Macedonia. Undoubtedly, Mount Kozuf holds a high capacity of diversity and distribution of diatom flora which we had the unique opportunity to know, unravel and discover.
