The effect of irradiance (40 and 840 micromol photons m(-2) s(-1)) of short-term (48 h) irradiation on photosynthetic activity (estimated as oxygen evolution and as chlorophyll fluorescence), specific absorption and fluorescence excitation spectra, photosynthetic pigment accumulation (chlorophyll a and biliproteins) and UV-absorbing compounds(More)
Growth rate in terms of area expansion per 30 min was measured in the marine red algae Porphyra leucosticta under light/dark cycles of 6:6 h. Thalli grown in artificial seawater (ASW), under controlled ionic concentrations, showed a rapid thallus expansion just after light-on (morning-peak). Dark phase began with a significant thallus contraction(More)
