By Robert A. Andersen

Algal Culturing Techniques is a entire reference on all points of the isolation and cultivation of marine and freshwater algae, together with seaweeds. it truly is divided into seven components that conceal heritage, media education, isolation and purification innovations, mass culturing concepts, telephone counting and progress size recommendations, and stories on subject matters and purposes of algal tradition strategies for environmental investigations.

Algal Culturing Techniques used to be constructed to function either a brand new textbook and key reference for phycologists and others learning aquatic platforms, aquaculture and environmental sciences. scholars of algal ecology, marine botany, marine phycology, and microbial ecology will benefit from the hands-on technique for culturing a number of algae from clean and marine waters. Researchers in undefined, resembling aquaculture, pharmaceutical, foodstuffs, and biotechnology businesses will locate an authoritative and entire reference.
