  • The effect of pendimethalin on the green alga Protosiphon botryoides was investigated. Results indicate that specific growth rate, cell number, chlorophyll a level, and dry weight yield significantly decrease with increasing pendimethalin concentrations, while protein and carbohydrate contents increase significantly. On the other hand, photosynthetic activity decreases whereas dark respiration increases with high pendimethalin concentrations. High doses of pendimethalin exhibited no clear trend… CONTINUE READING
