Yeast communities in 8 types of natural habitats in typical biotopes of the White Sea coastal zone at the polar circle latitude are described. Approximately 60 species among 780 isolated yeast strains were identified. The greatest diversity was revealed between the groupings of yeasts inhabiting soils and various parts of living plants and those associated with insect habitats. Basidiomycetous species were prevalent in the former case while ascomycetes predominated in the latter.
