Purpose. Creation of a reference bibliographic list of English-language open access publications from the Internet on the issues of the specific effects of heavy metals on freshwater ecosystems, their bioaccumulation and bioindication, as well as the functions of microelements in the hydrobionts organisms. Methodology. In the process of preparing the thematic list, in the course of systemic search, holistic and selective methods were applied. The bibliographic core consists of literature sources from archives of scientific publications, in particular, such world-famous journals as Environmental Contamination Toxicology, Ecotoxicology, Aquatic Science, Aquatic Toxicology, Environmental Bioindicators, Canadian Journal of Fisheries and Aguatic Sciences and many others. Results. A thematic bibliographic list of major works has been formed: specialized scientific collections, materials of international scientific conferences, scientific papers, articles and extended dissertationa abstracts. It includes 227 sources, all of them are in English and are publicly available on the Internet. The presented publications cover a time interval from 1953 to 2018. However, most of them were published after 2000. In selected works, studies on the bioaccumulation and bioindication of heavy metals in freshwater ecosystems are highlighted, and data on the effect of trace elements on the organism of hydrobionts are given. Literature sources are arranged in alphabetical order according to the author or title, which corresponds to GOST 8302: 2015 “Information and documentation. Bibliography link. General provisions and rules for drafting, as amended (OCD code 01.140.40), as well as in accordance with the requirements for the design of the list of references according to the international standard APA style. Practical value. The presented list will be useful for scientists, practitioners, students whose research concerns the analysis of the effects of heavy metals on freshwater ecosystems and patterns of bioindication and bioaccumulation of toxicants in hydrobionts, as well as the role of trace elements in their body.
