Two types with regard to adaptation to different light intensities are described: tbe Chlorella type and the Cyclotella type. The Chlorella type is mostly found among the green algae, the Cyclotella type among the diatoms. The Chlorella type adapts to a new light intensity mainly by changing the pigment content. Therefore the cells adapted to a high light… CONTINUE READING
