Abstract

Mass production of green plants – algae, mosses and ferns – in the illuminated areas of show caves is a common phenomenon. The process can be so intensive that it appears as the most serious danger to the beauties (geological formations, crystals, dripstone decorations, etc.) of the cave. Studies on plants developing in lamp areas have been carried out in Hungary (Hajdú 1977, Hajdú and Orbán 1982) and in other contries (Dobat 1966, Clair and Rushforth 1976, Clair et al. 1981) as well. In spite of this fact direct experiments on the subject have not been carried out yet. To study the development of plants around electric lights 13 lamps were placed in different parts of the cave „Pál-völgyi-barlang” (Budapest, Hungary). This paper summarizes the results of the first year of the experiment.
