The transfer of laboratory cultures of H. pluvialis to high irradiance outdoors caused a substantial decline in the maximum quantum yield of photosystem II (PSII), and a steep rise in non-photochemical quenching (NPQ), reflecting a certain PSII heterogeneity.
Preliminary investigation on the production of fuels and bio-char from Chlamydomonas reinhardtii biomass residue after bio-hydrogen production.

This review summarizes the main advances made over the past decade as an outcome of the discovery of the sulfur-deprivation process, and particular emphasis is placed on algal biohydrogen production outdoors, and guidelines for an optimal photobioreactor design are suggested.

Cell permanence in space reduced the photosynthetic growth while the oxygen evolution capacity of the cells after the flight was enhanced, suggesting a potential role of PSII in capturing and utilizing ionizing radiation energy is postulated.
Preventive Effects of the Marine Microalga Phaeodactylum tricornutum, Used as a Food Supplement, on Risk Factors Associated with Metabolic Syndrome in Wistar Rats
This study highlights the beneficial effects of P. tricornutum in reducing the metabolic disorders associated with metabolic syndrome and obesity development.
Antioxidant defences and oxidative damage in salt-treated olive plants under contrasting sunlight irradiance.
It is suggested that under partial shading, the antioxidant defence system may be ineffective to counter salt-induced oxidative damage, and zeaxanthin may protect the chloroplast from photo-oxidative damage, rather than dissipating excess excitation energy via non-photochemical quenching mechanisms.
