Method Primary source abstract: "The biomass yield on light energy of Dunaliella tertiolecta and Chlorella sorokiniana was investigated in a 1.25- and 2.15-cm light path panel photobioreactor at constant ingoing photon flux density (930 µmol photons m^⁻² s^⁻¹)."
Comments P.121 left column top paragraph: "Furthermore, it [biomass yield on photons for Cyanobacteria Synechocystis PCC 6803, BNID 113875] is also comparable to the Y'x/h determined in continuous cultivations of Dunaliella tertiolecta and Chlorella sorokiniana, 0.78 and 0.75 gDW/mol photons, respectively [primary source]."
