Abstract

The aim of the construction of Kis-Balaton Water Protection System was that the water of river Zala loaded significantly by plant nutrients should not flow directly into Lake Balaton. The nutrient uptake of aquatic plants and their periphyton plays important role in this concept. On the basis of the results the reed-periphyton can be characterised by small dry mass and chlorophyll a concentration. A significant change was observed during the period of investigation. The nutrient (N and P) content of periphyton is variable according to the different areas of the reservoir. The phosphorus content of periphyton shows an increasing tendency and it has an important role in the retention and stabilisation, accumulation of the phosphorus in the water protection system.
