The authors present an investigation of the ecology and the phytoplankton of Stani Saliu, located in the north of Cagliari (Southern Sardinia). The purpose of this study was to bring a contribute to the knowledge of the astatic ponds. This salt pond was studied from January 2000 to May 2001, and biotic and abiotic parameters [including, depth, water temperature, pH, salinity, dissolved oxygen, chlorophyll, nutrients and organic dry matter] were taken into consideration. The nutrients concentration and the primary production was quite different in the two periods of study. Twenty different genera of phytoplankton were found; a low diversity in phytoplanktonic species, and the diversity of trends of the concentrations of principal nutrients and primary production during the two periods showed as this ecosystem was an highly unstable environment, with slow relisience.
