Nutrient enrichment in the Great Lakes has provided fertile areas for growth of algal nuisances. One of these species, Cladophora glomerata, has become a major problem for many cities bordering the Great Lakes. Ecological factors concerning its growth in Milwaukee's Harbor were studied, and its distribution in the Great Lakes determined. Phosphorus levels appear to be closely linked with Cladophora increases.
