||The High-light cultures were
grown under 650 mmol quanta×m^-2×s^-1 (HL). Transmission electron microscopy, TEM analysis was carried
out by applying two methods: superimposition of an array of
short lines (Freere and Weibel 1967) and ImagePro1 analysis
(Fisher et al. 1998). Cell volume of the HL- and
LL- acclimated cells was calculated from their diameters, measured
with a light microscope.
||Volume of cells in cultures moved to low light, 30 mmol quanta×m^-2×s^-1, remained similar, 10.7±3µm^3. Nannochloropsis are unicellular, free-floating microalga that belong to Eustigmatophyceae,
a group lacking any chlorophylls other
than chlorophyll a (chl a)
