The role of charophytes in the stabilisation of the fish pond ecosystem after biomanipulation is investigated. Nitrogen limitations as a mechanism for the suppression of an unwanted phytoplankton bloom is being investigated. Laboratoriumexperiments in which also unicellular algae are cultivated in Chara-medium can explain the role of allelopathy in an ecosystem dominated with a dense Chara-vegetation.
