||Environmental data are presented for 117 species and 24 genera of freshwater algae that have been associated with or are responsible for water quality problems. The environmental data are based upon algal occurrence records from 250 lakes sampled in Eastern and Southeastern States. The water quality problems addressed include eutrophication, organic pollution, taste and odor, filter clogging, toxicity, and aesthetic nuisance. Data presented illustrate that most genera and species associated with eutrophic conditions also occur in nutrient-poor waters, thus limiting their indicator value with respect to nutrient enrichment.
