On the Factors Which Determine Massive beta-Carotene Accumulation in the Halotolerant Alga Dunaliella bardawil.
The results are interpreted as indicating a protecting effect of beta-carotene against injury by high irradiance under conditions of impairment in chlorophyll content per cell.
Comparative cost analysis of algal oil production for biofuels
CHEMICAL PROFILE OF SELECTED SPECIES OF MICROALGAE WITH EMPHASIS ON LIPIDS 1
The low production of hydrocarbon fractions in nitrogen deficient Botryococcus braunii Kutz and Dunaliella salina Thomas cannot support the notion that microalgae can be utilized as biosolar energy converters for the production of liquid fuel, but point to the availability of a variety of neutral and polar lipid products.

The Role of Glycerol in the Osmotic Regulation of the Halophilic Alga Dunaliella parva.
The above results indicate the existence of a new type of algal osmoregulation, in which the osmotic balance depends on the synthesis or degradation of intracellular glycerol in response to the external salt concentration.
ACCUMULATION OF β‐CAROTENE IN HALOTOLERANT ALGE: PURIFICATION AND CHARACTERIZATION OF β‐CAROTENE‐RICH GLOBULES FROM DUNALIELLA BARDAWIL (CHLOROPHYCEAE) 1
It is suggested that the β‐carotene globules may serve to protect D. bardawil against injury by the high intensity irradiation to which this alga is usually exposed in nature.

The results indicate that a selected algal product can be promoted specifically by growth manipulation of the alga and its environment.
Mode of Action of the Massively Accumulated beta-Carotene of Dunaliella bardawil in Protecting the Alga against Damage by Excess Irradiation.
Observations suggest that the massively accumulated beta-carotene in D. bardawil protects the alga against damage by high irradiation by screening through absorption of the blue region of the spectrum.
