Abstract

Describes an unusual vernal bloom of Dinobryon sociale (Chrysophyta Chrysomonadales) in the plankton of Lake Balaton, Hungary, in 1993. The event was aberrant for two reasons: 1) the alga seems ecologically unsuited to the environmental characteristics of Balaton and, indeed, has been recorded hitherto only sporadically; 2) the 1993 bloom had a very localized origin, a near shore area subject to dredging operations, and the rapid growth of the inoculum did much to perpetuate a strongly patchy distribution with respect to the dispersion of the species in the whole eastern lake area. -from Authors
