New PDF release: Algal Culturing Techniques

By Robert A. Andersen

Algal Culturing Techniques is a finished reference on all points of the isolation and cultivation of marine and freshwater algae, together with seaweeds. it's divided into seven elements that conceal historical past, media guidance, isolation and purification suggestions, mass culturing innovations, phone counting and development dimension options, and reports on themes and purposes of algal tradition innovations for environmental investigations.

Algal Culturing Techniques was once built to function either a brand new textbook and key reference for phycologists and others learning aquatic structures, aquaculture and environmental sciences. scholars of algal ecology, marine botany, marine phycology, and microbial ecology will benefit from the hands-on technique for culturing various algae from clean and marine waters. Researchers in undefined, equivalent to aquaculture, pharmaceutical, foodstuffs, and biotechnology businesses will locate an authoritative and finished reference.

For macroalgal cultures, enrichments based on the “Grund” medium of von Stosch (1963) are most commonly used. Provasoli’s ES medium and its modifications are also used (McLachlin 1973, West and McBride 1999).
