The Central Death Valley desert was investigated at seasonal intervals between 1959 and 1961 to determine the algae indigenous to its freshwater ponds and streams. Myxophyceae, Chlorophyceae, and Bacillariophyceae were represented by substantial populations throughout the year. Blue-green algae were especially predominant under the thermophilic conditions. Thirty-two previously unrecorded species were also found in the survey.
