Example text

There are several different cryoprotectants in use, the success of which varies with respect to specific strains of algae (Morris, 1981; Nerad and Daggett, 1992). For example, glycerol has been used successfully for many algae (Morris, 1981; Lee and Soldo, 1992). , 1994). , 1994). However, because even trace amounts of DMSO inhibit photosynthesis, thorough removal is required following thawing. Methanol is as good as or better than glycerol and DMSO for Euglena and Chlorella. When Euglena gracilis was grown at 20~ and exposed to glycerol, DMSO, and methanol, the percent recovery was much greater with methanol (Figure 3) (Morris, 1981).

Andersen tion; Komarek, personal communication). In colleges and universities, the prokaryotic algae are taught in phycology courses, not in bacteriology courses. , 1991). Classification and Diversity Algal systematics is an area of science that is undergoing active research, and like other dynamic scientific fields, new information and new ideas lead to change. The classification of the algae has undergone considerable change during the past 30 years, and it is likely that changes will continue.
