This situation is constant during each of subsequent experiments as long as the technique remains unchanged. Nevertheless, data obtained in different laboratories with different sources, different geometry of illumination, and different culture vessels may not be directly comparable. Second, as the culture grows, mutual shading of the cells reduces the actual amount of light received by a particular cell. It has been assumed that this factor does not influence growth as long as measurements indicate that the culture is in the logarithmic 1 Received October 1, 1957. phase.
