Lanthanides are biologically non-essential elements with wide applications in technology and industry. Their concentration as environmental contaminants is, therefore, increasing. Although non-essential, lanthanides have been proposed (and even used) to produce beneficial effects in plants, even though their mechanisms of action are unclear. Recently, it(More)
The effect of nitrogen and sulphur limitation under high irradiance (PAR) was studied in the green microalga Chlorella fusca (Chlorophyta) in order to follow lipid and/or starch accumulation. Growth, biomass composition and the changes in photosynthetic activity (in vivo chlorophyll a fluorescence) were followed in the trials. The full nutrient culture(More)
In order to estimate microalgal carbon assimilation or production of Chlorella fusca cultures based on electron transport rate (ETR) as in vivo chlorophyll a fluorescence, it is necessary to determine the photosynthetic yield and the absorbed quanta by measuring the incident irradiance and the fraction of absorbed light, i.e., absorptance or absorption(More)
