Characteristics of inorganic carbon assimilation by photosynthesis in seawater were investigated in six species of the Fucales (five Fucaceae, one Cystoseiraceae) and four species of the Laminariales (three Laminariaceae, one Alariaceae) from Arbroath, Scotland. All of the algae tested could photosynthesise faster at high external pH values than the(More)
Ten species of brown macroalgae (five eulittoral and one submersed species of the Fucales; four submersed species of the Laminariales) from a rocky shore at Arbroath, Scotland, were examined for characteristics of emersed photosynthesis in relation to the partial pressure of CO2 and O2. The five eulittoral species of the Fucaceae were approaching CO2(More)
A disposable screen-printed e-tongue based on sensor array and pattern recognition that is suitable for the assessment of water quality in fish tanks is described. The characteristics of sensors fabricated using two kinds of sensing materials, namely (i) lipids (referred to as Type 1), and (ii) alternative electroactive materials comprising liquid(More)
Many reports have revealed that the abundance of microalgae in shrimp ponds vary with changes in environmental factors such as light, temperature, pH, salinity and nutrient level throughout a shrimp culture period. In this study, shrimp cultivation period was divided into three stages (initial = week 0-5, mid = week 6-10 and final = week 11-15). Physical(More)
This study aimed to evaluate the spatial and temporal distribution of heavy metals (Cd, Cr, Cu, Co, Fe, Pb, Ni, V, and Zn) in the sediments of Bayan Lepas Free Industrial Zone of Penang, Malaysia. Ten sampling stations were selected and sediment samples were collected during low tide (2012-2013). Metals were analyzed and the spatial distribution of metals(More)
In this study, the biosorption of copper and zinc ions by Chlorella sp. and Chlamydomonas sp. isolated from local environments in Malaysia was investigated in a batch system and by microscopic analyses. Under optimal biosorption conditions, the biosorption capacity of Chlorella sp. for copper and zinc ions was 33.4 and 28.5 mg/g, respectively, after 6 hr of(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the agar content and agar gel strength from intact and squeezed thalli of Gracilaria manilaensis collected from the earthen pond at Pantai Merdeka, Kedah, Malaysia. Agar content and agar gel strength of different agar extraction processes, i.e. native extraction and NaOH (5% w/v NaOH) treated of intact and squeezed(More)
