The phytoplankton communities andrelated physical-chemical features of the Euphrates River at its middle regioninside Iraqi territory were studied during the study period from October 2011to September 2012. Samples were taken from Al-Musayab district extending toAl-Hindia district. The phytoplankton community quantitative, qualitative andChlorophyll-a have been studied, in addition to many environmental parameterssuch as temperature, pH, electric conductivity EC, Salinity ‰, TDS, TSS, dissolved oxygen, BOD5.A total of 105 phytoplankton taxa belonging to Bacillariophyta 69, Chlorophyta19, Cynophyta 12, Euglenophyta 3, and Dinophyta 2 were recorded withinthe present study period. Some algal genera dominated mostly in the studyperiod and sites such as Scendesmus, Melosira, Cymbella, Diatoma, Navicula, Nitiazschia and Syndera. Astatistical analysis was done using the canonical correspondence analysis CCA.
