Algal Culturing Techniques is a complete reference on all points of the isolation and cultivation of marine and freshwater algae, together with seaweeds. it truly is divided into seven elements that hide historical past, media training, isolation and purification thoughts, mass culturing innovations, phone counting and progress dimension ideas, and reports on subject matters and purposes of algal tradition concepts for environmental investigations.

Algal Culturing Techniques was once constructed 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 numerous algae from clean and marine waters. Researchers in undefined, resembling aquaculture, pharmaceutical, foodstuffs, and biotechnology businesses will locate an authoritative and entire reference.
