Allelopathic influence on blue-green bloom sequence in a eutrophic lake.


The bloom sequence in a eutrophic lake, Linsley Pond, over a period of 3 years is correlated to the effects of cell-free filtrates of dominant blue-green algae on both their successors and their predecessors. There is unbroken correspondence between the effects of heat-labile probiotic and antibiotic filtrates and the rise and fall of bloom populations in situ. All organisms in vitro were axenic or unialgal (bacterized) isolates from Linsley Pond.
