Title The Effect of Salinity on Growth and Chlorophyll Content in Representative Classes of Unicellular Marine Algae Significant Findings Questions and Observations The purpose of this study was to determine if there was a general relationship between the relative amount of chlorophyll per cell and growth at various salinities in unicellular marine algae Salinity is an important and critical ecological component to a marine environment and habitat specially those inland Through out this study growth and relative chlorophyll content per cell of marine algae were determined at various salinities from 25 to 35 parts per thousand Marine algae examined in this report include the following Platymonas sp Syracosphaera carterae Monochrysis lutheri Olisthodiscus sp Thalassiosira decipiens Cyclotella sp Cryptomonas sp Amphidinium carteri and Porphyridium sp As noted in the report all marine algae organisms grew well in a broad range of salinities thus the organisms investigated showed a wide range of salinity tolerance However the researcher also found that algae growth was suppressed at lower salinity levels and that two of the organisms looked at showed salinity optima A possible reason for organisms showing resistance to salinity levels may be due to the organism being osmotically adaptive to the environment However this trend was only noted in water with a salinity less than full strength seawater Finally the report suggests and describes that salinity is an important factor in controlling the distribution of organisms in the marine environment
