Abstract
Alge Caulerpa taxifolia i Caulerpa racemosa var. cylindracea predstavljaju jednu od najvećih opasnosti za bioraznolikost Jadranskog i Sredozemnog mora. Zahvaljujući brojnim prilagodbama obje vrste su se brzo proširile i naselile sve tipove morskog dna. Masovan razvoj ovih alga dovodi do nestanka autohtonih organizama i stvaranja monokultura. Dosadašnje metode uklanjanja i saniranja područja zahvaćanih ovim invazivnim vrstama nisu se pokazale dovoljno uspješne. Međutim, novija istraživanja usmjerena su na biološku kontrolu različitim herbivornim organizmima koji će se njima hraniti i na taj način značajno smanjiti njihovu brojnost.

Parallel abstract (English)
Due to their numerous adjustment abilities, Caulerpa taxifolia and Caulerpa racemosa var.cylindracea represent the major threat to the biodiversity of the Adriatic and the Mediterranean Sea. Both of the species expand rapidly and colonize different varieties of the seabed which results in disappearing of the indigenous organisms and in generating the monocultures. Although the previous restoration methods of the areas affected by these invasive species prove insufficient, the most recent research, by focusing on the biological control utilizing diversified herbivore species, has reduced the amount of algae significantly.
