This study reports comparison of two techniques measuring photosynthesis in the ubiquitous diatom Skeletonema costatum, i.e., the classical oximetry and the recent modulated fluorimetry. Microalgae in semi-continuous cultures were exposed to five different environmental conditions simulating a seasonal effect with co-varying temperature, photoperiod and incident light. Photosynthesis was assessed by gross rate of oxygen evolution (P(B)) and the electron transport rate (ETR) measurements. The… CONTINUE READING
