DescriptionThe microbial and chemical properties of log ponds along the Oregon coast were investigated. The log ponds were highly eutrophic, containing high concentrations of ammonium and nitrate nitrogen, phosphate, and organic compounds. Because of large microbial populations, the biochemical oxygen demand was high and dissolved oxygen was low. Bacterial species in log ponds were relatively similar to those found in streams with rich nutrient content. Most of the fungi in log ponds were lymabiont and lymaphilous. Some fungal species reportedly associated with fish disease were present in log ponds and in ponds without log storage as well.
