Abstract

An axenic and continuous culture of a blue-green alga, , was established in a Roux bottle. The opalescent plate method was used to measure the light energy absorbed by the cells and to assess the cell growth yield, i.e. the amount of dry algal cells harvested per kcal light energy absorbed. Values of calculated ranged from 0·01 to 0·02 g cell kcal.
