E. Kolp, A. Peterhansl, M. Obermayr & G. Becker
Four macroalgae (Ulva lactuca, Fucus vesiculosus, Gracilaria, Ceramium) from the tideland of Sylt (Germany) were cultivated over a period of four weeks in an open pond system. The water temperature averaged 15 °C in all aquaria and was kept constant by a cooling system. The specific growth rates of algae were calculated by measuring the fresh weight once a week. The green alga Ulva lactuca had a broad optimum in the second week in two...
