1. Chlorella pyrenoidosa has been grown in a continuous-culture apparatus under various light intensities provided by incandescent lamps, other conditions of culture being maintained constant. The harvested cells were analyzed for cell number, dry weight, nitrogen, and chlorophyll per unit cell volume. 2. Cell nitrogen and cell volume are parallel measures of cellular material over the range of light intensity studied. 3. The dry weight per cell volume increases slowly with light intensity… CONTINUE READING
