This is the first study of new locality the Borot Loz Natural Reserve with charophyte algae in the Western Negev Desert, Israel revealing the algal diversity and providing an ecological assessment of the habitat by bio-indication methods. Altogether twenty four species of algae were found including macro-algae Chara vulgaris L. Bio-indication and chemical variables characterize the charophyte site environment as oligotrophic to mesotrophic with prevailing of benthic type of organisms of autotrophic type of nutrition, mostly attached of substrate and preferring slow streaming water of temperate temperature, low salinity, low alkalinity, and low to middle organic pollution, the water quality Class II-III. The algal community and water quality show the organic and other contaminants increasing from 2007 to 2015. The charophyte community is one of a few in the Negev with periodically development, and renewing population with oospores in sediments store. The Borot Loz cisterns system is recommended for research and monitoring of algal community in unique historical aquatic object under increasing anthropogenic and insolation impact, with Chara vulgaris as climatic indicator of resistance to sunlight intensity.
The technique of assessing the hydrological impacts of climate change is considered in article. Probability characteristics of river runoff in South West Africa were estimated on different climate scenarios. Anomalous zones on norms and coefficients of variation of annual runoff were identified. In these zones the most probable faults in operation of hydrotechnical structures will expect.
