The unicellular chlorophyte Ankistrodesmus convolutus Corda was grown in the light using inorganic medium (Bold's Basal Medium, BBM) and BBM enriched with 0.1% w/v of glucose, sodium acetate, sodium citrate or sodium bicarbonate. Glucose supported the highest specific growth rate (µ = 0.93 d-1) and gave the highest biomass (453 mg dry weight L-1) at the time of harvest. Of four glucose concentrations (0.05, 0.1, 0.25, 0.5% w/v), best growth was attained at 0.1% w/v. At 0.5% w/v glucose, the… CONTINUE READING
