Effect of different dosages of zinc on the growth and biomass in five marine microalgae

Marine environment often restrain toxic heavy metals that may enter into the food web via uptake by microalgae and eventually cause severe poisoning problems at higher tropic levels. The effects of Zinc cations upon growth of five native microalgal species, Chlorella marina, Isochrysis galbana, Tetraselmis sp., Nannochloropsis sp., and Dunaliella salina were evaluated.
