  • Chlorella Vulgaris Research Paper

    Introduction Chlorella vulgaris is known to date back more than 2.5 billion years. C. vulgaris is a unicellular green algae that is eukaryotic (Wells). Because of its long life on earth it has been essential for C. vulgaris to evolve so it can survive. One feature that C. vulgaris has is its ability to grow rapidly. Because of its rapid growth scientist have been studying it and found that it can be used in many different ways; wastewater treatments, production of protein-rich food and feed additives, and biofuel (Cakmak,Wells). Specialty oils, and cosmetics can also be products from algae (Griffiths et al). The limit of fossil fuels makes it more important to be able to find renewable energy resources. There are many positives that come from using microalgae as a renewable resource; it has a large lipid content, make…

  • The Algae Bloom Process

    3. Algae bloom process the microbes involved in Algae are a diverse group of photosynthetic microorganisms, which vary from small, single-celled microbes to complex multicellular forms. Though algae bloom is considered as natural phenomena, but nutrient pollution can increase their frequency, duration and intensity. After getting adequate nutrition, the algae can grow rapidly in warm and slow moving water. The rapid increase in number causes the bloom to turn water noticeably green, but other…

  • Anthozoans: Coral Reefs

    This is through a process of slow deposition and accumulation of limestone removed from seawater. Stony corals and coralline red algae grow among the coral colonies. Limestone is used for the outer part of coral polyps and hardening the fleshy parts of the coralline algae. After organisms die, they leave the limestone skeletons. The reef-building process is very slow, it takes decades to centuries. Coral reefs start to form when coral larvae attach to hard surfaces such as submerged rock along…

  • Phytoplankton Vs Phosphorus Essay

    the remaining liquid. While waiting for the centrifuge, I measured the absorbance of the 90% acetone at wavelengths 750, 664, 647, and 630 nm on a spectrophotometer. Once the sample was done centrifuging, I repeated the wavelength measurements for the supernatant of the samples. I corrected the absorbance values for the solvent and turbidity. I then calculated the pigments present for each treatment (equations 1-4). Once the correct equations were determined, I calculated the pigment…

  • The Consequences Of Eutrophication

    Eutrophication is a natural occurrence over the past centuries as bodies of water age and contains sediment (Carpenter 1981). However, due to human activities, the rate of eutrophication has increased and now plays a big role in fish kills. This happens when inordinate amount of fertilizers flow down the rivers and streams and into the sea, which in turn encourages algae and most, if not all, aquatic plants to overgrow. Fishes will then suffocate due to lack of oxygen and sunlight excessively…

  • Ada Hayden Lake Essay

    Larger inputs of nitrogen cause an abundance of phytoplankton and macrophyte production (Ferree and Shannon 2001).The purpose of this study was to examine nitrogen and phosphorus levels at Ada Hayden Lake in the comparative context of their effect on phytoplankton abundance as well as toxicity. Based on previous labs, we have found Ada Hayden Lake to be mesotrophic-eutrophic; this supported our prediction. According to Table 2 in the appendices, the amount of D.O. decreased resulting in a lot of…

  • The Pros And Cons Of Coral Reef Diving

    CORAL REEF DIVING IS AN ALL-TIME FAVORITE TO MOST SCUBA DIVERS. BUT LIKE IT OR NOT, SCUBA DIVERS ARE CAUSING SUBSTANTIAL DAMAGE TO THE WORLD’S CORAL REEFS. Scientific evidence shows that divers are directly and/or indirectly responsible for damaging the reef life with some of their thoughtless behaviors. Not to say that all divers are harming reef life intentionally. But due to some divers’ lack of proper training, it is done unknowingly at times. Coral reef diving possesses some unique…

  • Effects Of Global Warming On Coral Reefs

    Global warming has many effects on the world, but it especially has an impact on the ocean. Global temperature rise can affect many ecosystems, and the species within them. Coral Reefs Coral reefs are valuable resources for ocean life. Coral and algae have a symbiotic relationship, with the algae living in the coral and being the primary food source for the coral. As a consequence, this symbiotic relationship provides habitats for small fish and plants due to the abundance of food found in the…

  • Essay On Emperor Angelfish

    Canal and started to colonize areas in the Mediterranean coast. As a result of aquarium release, some populations of the species have been observed outside their natural range such as Japan, Australia and others. Habitats: Emperor angelfish adults live in or close to reefs at depths ranging from 1-100 m. They can be found hiding in caves in areas of rich coral growth on clear lagoon, seaward, or channel reefs. Adults are more often seen patrolling over the open reef. Juveniles and sub-adults…
