A computer-controlled phytoplankton culture system is described which is regulated as a chemostat. Measurements of temperature, pH, size distribution, culture density,in vivo fluorescence, nitrate and nitrite, are automatic and programmable, thus obviating manual errors. The system has been developed successfully to survey long-term cultures of the dinoflagellateProrocentrum minimum.
