The addition of bicarbonate (NaHCO3; 0, 1, or 2 g L−1) to microalgal cultures has been evaluated for two species (Tetraselmis suecica and Nannochloropsis salina) in respect of growth and biochemical composition. In batch cultures, addition of bicarbonate (1 g L−1) resulted in significantly (P < 0.05) higher final mean cell abundances for both species. No differences in specific growth rates (SGRs) were recorded for T. suecica between treatments; however, increasing bicarbonate addition… CONTINUE READING
