Most algae have great importance for all humanity and the biosphere in general. They are important sources of proteins, soil materials and fertilizers, and also bioindicators of soil condition, depolluting agents (accumulation of radioactive isotopes); algae-based fertilizers can inhibit the growth of phytopathogenic agents (Şchiopu, 2008). Algae provide good results in testing the nutrient supply in soil and the remanence of toxic substances resulted from pesticide use. They could also be used in bioreactors to generate various chemicals from hydrogen to biodiesel or cosmetics. The presence of algae, known as invasive, has devastating effects as they affect biodiversity of the ecosystems in which they grows, which requires their control (possession, sale, transport). This study draws attention to the uncontrolled introduction in Romania of some algae known to be invasive.
