The effects of UV-B radiation on the nutritional composition of Antarctic phytoplankton
Entry ID: ASAC_872

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The actual piece of equipment used was an International Light IL 1700Radiometer equipped with broad band detectors to measure PAR, UV-A and erythemal UV-B.

The effects of UV-B radiation on the fatty acid, total lipid and sterol composition and content of three Antarctic marine phytoplankton were examined in a preliminary culture experiment. Exponential growth phase cultures of the diatoms ... View entire text
