The microalga Pavlova lutheri is a potential source of economically valuable docosahexaenoic and eicosapentaenoic acids. Specific chemical and physical culture conditions may enhance their biochemical synthesis. There are studies relating the effect of CO2 on growth; however, this parameter should not be assessed independently, as its effect strongly depends on the light intensity available. In this research, the combined effects of light intensity and CO2 content on growth and fatty acid… CONTINUE READING
