Allelopathic interactions of cyanobacteria and microalgae in aquatic ecosystem
Languages of publication
The term "allelopathy" was introduced to science in 1937 by Hans Molisch, who used the concept of allelopathy to identify negative impact of chemicals secreted by a plant on the growth of other neighboring plants. In 1996, the International Allelopathy Society has broadened the meaning of allelopathy as any inhibitory or stimulatory process in which chemical substances secreted by various organisms interact with their ecosystem. Allelopathy may be one of the factors contributing to formation and maintenance of cyanobacterial and algal blooms, which strongly affect coastal marine ecosystems and cause economic problems for commercial aquaculture. A better understanding of the complexity and nature of underlying allelopatic interactions may help to explain the emergence of massive blooms of cyanobacteria and algae in many aquatic ecosystems.
