Laboratory studies on adhesion of microalgae to hard substrates
Adhesion of Chlorella vulgaris(chlorophyceae), Nitzschia amphibia(bacillariophceae) and Chroococcus minutus(cyanobacteria) to hydrophobic (perspex, titanium and stainless steel 316-L), hydrophilicExpand
Impact of thermal discharge from a tropical coastal power plant on phytoplankton
(1) The impact of thermal effluents from coastal power plant located on the east coast of India on phytoplankton was studied by field observations and laboratory experiments. (2) Monthly boat cruisesExpand
Nutrient dynamics and successional changes in a lentic freshwater biofilm
SUMMARY 1. Colonisation, species composition, succession of microalgae and nutrient dynamics in biofilms grown under light and dark conditions were examined during the initial phases of biofilmExpand
Early stages of biofilm succession in a lentic freshwater environment
Initial events of biofilms development and succession were studied in a freshwater environment at Kalpakkam, East Coast of India. Biofilms were developed by suspending Perspex (Plexiglass) panels forExpand
Phytoplankton growth under temperature stress: Laboratory studies using two diatoms from a tropical coastal power station site
Abstract (1) The paper reports results of laboratory studies on growth rates at elevated temperatures of two diatoms ( Chaetoceros wighami and Amphora coffeaeformis ) isolated from the intake andExpand
Laboratory studies on adhesion of microalgae to hard substrates
Adhesion of Chlorella vulgaris (chlorophyceae), Nitzschia amphibia (bacillariophceae) and Chroococcus minutus (cyanobacteria) to hydrophobic (perspex, titanium and stainless steel 316-L), hydrophilicExpand
Use of coastal waters as condenser coolant in electric power plants: Impact on phytoplankton and primary productivity
Abstract (1) Studies on phytoplankton entrained in cooling system of a power plant revealed a reduction in biomass and gross primary productivity (GPP) at outfall, compared to intake. (2) GPP atExpand
Early stages of biofilm succession in a lentic freshwater environment
Initial events of biofilms development and succession were studied in a freshwater environment at Kalpakkam, East Coast of India. Biofilms were developed by suspending Perspex (Plexiglass) panels forExpand
Uptake and assimilation of nitrogen by marine diatoms—I. Kinetics of nitrogen uptake
Axenic cultures of marine diatoms,Achnanthes hauckiana Grun.,Amphora coffeaeformis (Agardh) Kütz.,Fragilaria pinnata Ehr.,Synedra tabulata (Agardh) Kütz.,Thalassiosira weissflogii (Grun.) Fryxell etExpand
Spatial variation in microalgal colonization on hard surfaces in a lentic freshwater environment
Qualitative and quantitative aspects of mesoscale spatial variation in microalgal colonization on Perspex panels were studied in a freshwater reservoir with a water spread of 1.7 hectares whichExpand
