Other extracellular algal products whose occurrence in natural waters has been discussed are polysaccharides, amino-acids, and polypeptides. 24 Studies on the secretion of dissolved material by macrophytes have shown that the littoral flora is a potential major source of dissolved organic matter (DOM) in lakes.

Krouse, International Symposium on Hydrogeochemistry and Biogeochemistry, Tokyo, September, 1970. 075 may be expected when cleavage of the N-0 bond is totally rate-controlling. g. 0%,,s7the total evidence strongly indicates that, in general, biologically combined nitrogen is enriched in 15N relative to the atmosphere, exceptions being legumes, which are capable of fixing atmospheric nitrogen directly. From this, Parker2' contends that denitrification processes, with the accompanying release of 'light' nitrogen into the atmosphere and the retention of 15N-enriched nitrate in the soil for subsequent biological utilization, probably largely control isotopic distribution.
1972,18,162. R. G. Wetzel and B. A. Manny, Limltol. , 1972, 17, 927. ), using a mixed culture obtained from a lake sediment, thus simulating decomposition at the sediment surface, has been studied under aerobic28and anaerobicz9conditions. Under aerobic conditionsthe production of dissolved organic matter was about 7 % as carbon and 6 % as nitrogen after 30 days, and a proteinaceous compound, giving 14 amino-acids on hydrolysis, was recognized in the dissolved fraction. The decomposition rate during this time followed approximate first-order kinetics, and the decomposition pattern of the cell nitrogen suggested that the algal residue could be divided into labile and refractory constituents according to their resistance to bacterial attack.
