Spirulina: Growth, Physiology and Biochemistry

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Algal physiology and biochemistry have been reviewed and discussed quite extensively in the last decades. The excellent contributions by Lewin (1962), Fogg (1975) and Carr and Whitton (1973) are just a few examples of textbooks which cover a wide range of topics related to algal physiology and biochemistry. The aim of this chapter is to point out relevant areas in which Spirulina has been used as a model organism or studies whose data can be of significant importance in further understanding the growth, physiology and biochemistry of Spirulina, especially when grown in outdoor conditions.
