The widespread application of algal bioindicators in water quality monitoring is a current research focus. Its application not only provides a profound understanding of aquatic health but also offers valuable insights for the future development of water quality monitoring systems. The combination of laboratory research and field monitoring provides reliable data support for the practical application of algal bioindicators. Differences in the application of algae in various water types highlight their flexibility and adaptability in water quality monitoring. The future prospects of algal bioindicators in water quality monitoring will be driven by technological innovations, big data, and artificial intelligence. This review comprehensively elucidates the importance of algae as bioindicators in water quality monitoring and their practical significance. By analyzing the response mechanisms of algae to pollutants, their applications in different water types, and future directions, the critical role of algae in water quality monitoring is revealed. This provides a comprehensive perspective for better understanding changes in water quality, enhancing the accuracy and comprehensiveness of monitoring.
