Abstract

Chroococcus turgidus (Kuetz.) Naegeli occurs in great abundance in the shallow pools of an alkaline fen near Silver Lake, Iowa. Observations over a period of four years have shown a characteristic association in these pools of C. turgidus, Gomphosphaeria aponina Kuetzing, a large species of Oscillatoria, a species of Chara, and the aquatic moss, Drepanocladus aduncus (Hedw.) Wamst. The fen has been well descibed by Anderson ( 1943) and its unique vascular flora has long been a center of botanical interest.
