Abstract

The species composition and to a certain extent the individual number of the phytoplankton in the studied dead arms in the floodplain of the River Tisza is basically determined by the most important water supply, the river itself, which enters the dead arms during floods. After floods, when the connection between the main arm and the dead arms discontinued, the phytoplankton of the dead arms „remember?” its origin but then gradually changes and start to resemble the algae flora of lentic waters also developing several unique characters. The algal flora of nearly all investigated dead arms had a nature conservation value primarily because of their diversity, or the presence of several rare algae. From among the investigated dead arms, Kacsa-tó, Marót-zugi-holt-Tisza and Oláh-zugi-holt-Tisza showed less obvious natural values partly due to neighbouring villages partly due to human use (mainly intensive angling). Human impacts are the least pronounced at the Remete-zugi-Holt-Tisza, which has important natural values. It should be stressed, however, that the valuable algae flora of one or another site can only be maintained by the protection of the habitat (dead arm) and its watershed. In the case of less valuable dead arms (e.g. the eastern part of the Kacsa-tó, Oláh-zugi-holt-Tisza) it might mean the acceptance of the present situation with some improvement (e.g. controlling the number of angles around the dead arm). In other cases direct human use should be stopped and dead arm reconstruction is to be made to help the development of semi-natural conditions, e.g. at the Remete-zugi-holt-Tisza.
