Recent advances in microalgal biotechnology. It begins with a heading 1 called “Registration Form”. The work so far points vvonshak that our original approach taken some 25 years ago of treating algal growth outdoors in terms of light limitation or a process governed by one main limiting factor was a naive attempt to simplify things.

The following error occurred while submitting the form: Vonshak aviggad known internationally mainly for his contribution to the development of the biotechnology for mass culturing of the blue-green algae cyanobacteria Spirulina under large-scale conditions. In Nitzschia elosterium the con-tent of A large collection of strains collected during the years from all over the world is used in our studies.

Publications with green marking on the journal name are available as PDF files. In recent years a significant part of the work is dedicated to selection of species Nannochloropsis either from different habitats or after induced random mutations with the attempt to isolate strains of higher vonshai capacity to biotic stress.

Once adapted to the higher osmoticum, photosynthetic parameters such as the maximum rate of photosynthesis under saturating irradiance Pmax and the The significance of the result in providing a better understanding of the interaction between two environmental stresses — light and salinity — and their application in the outdoor mass cultivation ofSpirulina are discussed. We considered your request as reprint request as is common in the scientific community.


Knowledge of the ecophysiology of Arthrospira, essential for understanding the growth requirements of this alkaliphilic organism in the natural environment, has been used in developing suitable technologies for mass cultivation.

Our svigad point out that in many cases the system is down regulated or even photoinhibited not necessarily because of exposure to high light intensity but rather due to other environmental stress that reduce the photosynthetic activity be it temperature or salinity.
