Growth and Motility of the Diatom Cylindrotheca Closterium: Implications for Commercial Applications


A unialgal isolate of Cylindrotheca closterium (Ehremberg) Lewin and Reimann from the Newport River estuary was grown in f/2 seawater media under continuous saturating irradiance at 27uC. Growth rates and motility were measured in four replicate flasks under two experimental growth conditions: 1) unstirred batch cultures shaken once per day to suspend the… (More)
