Stigeoclonium tenue Kütz., a chief inhabitant of metal polluted waters, was studied in culture to understand its tolerance towards certain metals such as copper, manganese, mercury, silver and zinc. This study was carried out also with two other chemicals DDT and CaOCl2. The alga was inhibited by very low concentrations of HgCl2, AgNO3 and DDT while it tolerated high levels of other metals and CaOCl2.
