|Title:||Adenosine triphosphate, chlorophyll a and particulate oxidisable carbon in some marine diatoms|
|Authors:||Goes, J I|
|Abstract:||Cellular levels, of POC, chl a and ATP of 3 marine diatoms have been determined during their exponential stage of growth in culture. A fairly constant ratio has been observed in the levels of these components throughout the growth period irrespective of size and shape of each organism. Increase in levels of these components throughout the exponential growth phase is proportionate in all constituents studied. A relative fall in level of chl a and ATP with respect to POC is observed in the late stationary phase. Application of chl a:ATP and ATP:POC ratios in the computation of phytoplankton biomass in environmental samples has been discussed.|
