In nature and in the laboratory, phytoplankton cells are exposed to fast and extreme fluctuations in light intensity. These include diel and seasonal changes in irradiance, and changes stemming from vertical mixing over the light field. In algal mass cultures and photobioreactors, similar changes take place as cultures grow denser and as cells are mixed… CONTINUE READING
