Planktonic diatoms of the Zuari estuary, Goa (west coast of India)
TLDR
During the studies on fouling diatoms in Zuary estuary, Pennales were dominant over Centrales both in diversity of genera and species and overlying surface diatom were also studied for comparison.
Cryopreservation studies on the marine diatom Navicula subinflata Grun
TLDR
The present work reveals the possibility of application of cryopreservation in marine algae by studying the effect of different cryoprotectants on the growth of marine diatom Navicula subinflata.
Studies on fouling diatoms from the Zuari estuary, Goa (West coast of India)
TLDR
The minima and maxima of number of cells showed an increasing trend from 1st day to 4th day of settlement and the number of diatoms was found to be minimum, whenever there was settlement of hydroids on the slides.
Growth of fouling diatoms from the Zuari estuary, Goa (west coast of India) under different salinities in the laboratory
TLDR
The growth of the diatoms was also found to be satisfactory at higher salinities of 25‰ and 35‰, and this would possibly be due to the spores of such diatom which were not incubated.
Relationship of fouling diatom number and chlorophyll-a value from Zuari estuary, Goa (west coast of India)
TLDR
High values of chlorophyll -a were recorded, although the diatom number was low, which may be due to the heavy deposition of Chlorella on glass slide, and no direct relationship could be established between diatomNumber and chlorophyLL-a value.
