Abstract: During a recent algological survey, carried out in 2001 at 6 small ponds of the Babat valley near Gödöllő, central Hungary, 209 taxa were recorded, of which 122 are new records. Two of the ponds are semi-natural, in these we identified 65 and 91 algae, respectively. Adjacent to the shore of two other ponds goose breeding is going on, with 56 and 41 taxa recorded in these manure-polluted ponds. The polluted water from these ponds runs directly to two further (lower) ponds, with 85 and 66 taxa identified, respectively. Several diatoms appear to be new for the flora of the Babat farm, which is attributed to the methodological differences between an earlier study and the recent survey. Surprisingly, Cylindrospermopsis raciborskii, the very common, toxic cyanobacteria, was found only in one, semi-natural pond having a unique, diverse alga flora. Chara canescens was found in the upper pond in the spring.
