A review of sterol markers for marine and terrigenous organic matter
Abstract A review of literature on the occurrence of 4-desmethyl sterols in unicellular algae indicates that few sterols are sufficiently restricted in distribution to be considered unambiguousExpand

Fatty acid and lipid composition of 10 species of microalgae used in mariculture
Abstract Total fatty-acid composition, lipid classes, Chl a contents and cell volumes of 10 species of microalgae commonly used in mariculture were examined. The microalgae were grown under definedExpand

Microalgal biomarkers: A review of recent research developments
Abstract Microalgae are major sources of lipids in lacustrine and marine environments. This paper provides a review of some recent advances in our knowledge of the wide variety of lipid types thatExpand

Nutritional properties of microalgae for mariculture
Microalgae are used in mariculture as live feeds for all growth stages of molluscs, for the larval stages of crustaceans and some fish species, and for zooplankton used in mariculture food chains. InExpand

Identification of natural, anthropogenic and petroleum hydrocarbons in aquatic sediments.
Complex distributions of hydrocarbons occur in most aquatic sediments. Total concentrations can range from a few parts per million in non-polluted intertidal and oceanic areas to parts per thousandExpand

The effects of varying CO2 concentration on lipid composition and carbon isotope fractionation in Emiliania huxleyi
We have measured the stable carbon isotopic composition of bulk organic matter (POC), alkenones, sterols, fatty acids, and phytol in the coccolithophorid Emiliania huxleyi grown in dilute batchExpand

Essential polyunsaturated fatty acids from 14 species of diatom (Bacillariophyceae)
Abstract The lipid class and total fatty acid compositions of 14 species of diatom (class Bacillariophyceae) were examined. The major lipid class in these microalgae was polar lipid (50.1-90.8%),Expand

Microbial lipids of an intertidal sediment—I. Fatty acids and hydrocarbons
A detailed study has been made of the solvent extractable monocarboxylic, dicarboxylic and hydroxylated fatty acids and n-alkanes in a surface intertidal sediment, and the distributions compared toExpand

Effect of diet on the lipid composition of wild and cultured abalone
Abstract Foot-muscle tissue from wild-caught adults of the two main commercial species of Australian abalone, Haliotis laevigata and H. rubra , were analysed for fatty acid and sterol composition.Expand

Sterols and other triterpenoids: source specificity and evolution of biosynthetic pathways
Abstract The source specificity and biosynthesis of cyclic isoprenoids such as hopanoids, sterols and pentacyclic triterpenoids, which are commonly used as biomarkers in organic geochemistry, isExpand
