  • Effects of thiobencarb on growth, photosynthesis and photoinhibition of Nostoc sphaeroides colonies were examined. Thiobencarb concentrations higher than 2 mg/l led to a significant decrease in phycoerythrin, phycocyanin and allophycocyanin content, but no significant effect on chlorophyll a (chl a) content. Biomass yield, protein content and photosynthetic rate were reduced only in the highest thiobencarb concentration (10 mg/l). Colonies exposed to high thiobencarb dose (10 mg/l) were more… CONTINUE READING
