Five species of green algae isolated from the Cleveland County, Oklahoma, area and a commercially obtained yellow-green alga were tested for allelopathic interactions. Axenic cultures ofPandorina morum Bory were stimulated in three sterile filtrates from nonaxenic cultures ofScenedesmus incrassatulus var.mononae G.M. Smith, with the oldest filtrate showing the least stimulation. By measuring the growth of axenic cultures inoculated into sterile filtrates of old cultures, instances of inhibition… 
Differential sensitivity of green algae to allelopathic substances from Chara
TLDR
The results indicate allelopathic effects of Chara on the growth of the green algae Selenastrum capricornutum Printz and Chlorella minutissima Fott et Nováková, whereas Scenedesmus obliquus (Turpin) Kützing did not seem to be affected.
Allelopathic growth inhibition and colony formation of the green alga Scenedesmus obliquus by the aquatic macrophyte Stratiotes aloides
TLDR
Microscopic analyses confirmed that S. obliquus forms more colonies in the presence of water from a S. aloides culture and the mean particle volume of Scenedesmus increased significantly in the absence of Stratiotes water in all three experiments.
Interactive relationships of Microcystis aeruginosa and three species of Chlorella under the condition of coexistence
TLDR
Results provided evidence in support of algal relationship in waterbodies, pointed out that restriction of harmful algal bloom in a certain range of density or growth stage might be beneficial to restoration of water environment, and proposed that all the three chlorella species had competitive advantage to be used to protect against M. aeruginosa bloom.
Allelopathy in phytoplankton - biochemical, ecological and evolutionary aspects
TLDR
It is suggested that phytoplankton allelochemicals have the potential for management of HABs in localized areas and the possibility of using allelopathic agents to combat harmful algal blooms (HABs) is discussed.
Allelopathic activity of Spirogyra sp.: stimulating bloom formation and toxin production by Oscillatoria agardhii in some irrigation canals, Egypt
TLDR
The allelopathic activity of the green alga Spirogyra stimulating the growth of and toxin production by O. agardhii is demonstrated, demonstrating the biotic factor should be taken into consideration when cyanobacterial blooms are monitored in freshwater bodies.
Chemical warfare in freshwater
TLDR
Differences in the sensitivity of phytoplankton species to allelopathic substances were observed and it was shown that allelopathy may be more important for Stratiotes than it is for Chara, and chemical identification showed that the substance is/are moderately lipophylic and probably not phenolic.
Competition and allelopathy in aquatic plant communities
TLDR
The paper concludes that the observed differences in these interactions between the terrestrial and aquatic environment are due to the effects of water as a non-resource variable as well as due to special adaptive characteristics of aquatic plants.
Allelopathy: An overview from micro- to macroscopic organisms, from cells to environments, and the perspectives in a climate-changing world
TLDR
The interconnections between terrestrial and aquatic systems in relation to the production, dynamics, and ecological effects of allelochemicals are examined and the possible effects of climate changes on allelopathic interactions are discussed.

COMPETITION BETWEEN SKELETONEMA COSTATUM AND OLISTHODISCUS LUTEUS IN NARRAGANSETT BAY AND IN CULTURE
TLDR
It is proposed that OZtihodticus achieves dominance by production of large amounts of an ectocrine (of suggested tannoid nature) that inhibits Skeletonema and that SkeletonEMA achieves dominance primarily by virtue of its superior reproductive rate, but that in addition, in small competing populations, its growth is accelerated by the OZisthodiscus ectocrine-a stimulant in low concentrations.
STUDIES ON CHLORELLA VULGARIS II. FURTHER EVIDENCE THAT CHLORELLA CELLS FORM A GROWTH‐INHIBITING SUBSTANCE
TLDR
The values obtained in the present work approximated reasonably closely those obtained for comparable cultures in the detailed earlier work, and were concluded, therefore, that the treatment effectively removed all cells.

Possible mode of action of a photosynthetic inhibitor produced byPandorina morum
TLDR
Molecular weight approximation by gel filtration established that the inhibitor produced by Pandorina morum has a low, molecular weight (probably below 100 mw).
