Abstract: Carotenoid content of microalga, <i style="">Dunaliella salina</i> was increased using different stress parameters, such as cell division inhibition (vinblastine), nitrogen starvation, high salinity and high irradiation with high temperature. Vinblastine had very little favourable effect. Salinity above 3 <i style="">M</i> significantly decreased the cell growth rate due to cell death but increased the per cell carotenoid content. With nitrogen starvation, <img src='/image/spc_char/beta.gif'>-carotene content increased from 1.65 pg/cell to 7.05 pg/cell. However, the maximum <img src='/image/spc_char/beta.gif'>-carotene (8.28 pg/cell) was obtained with high irradiation along with high temperature.
