Effects of crude oil on major functional characteristics of macroalgae of the Barents Sea

Effects of crude oil on major functional characteristics of macroalgae of the Barents Sea On the basis of experimental research on the influence of crude oil on basic functional characteristics (growing speed, photosynthesis, and breadth) of macroalgae of the Barents Sea (Laminaria saccharina, Fucus vesiculosus, Ascophyllum nodosum, Porphyra umbilicalis, Palmaria palmata, and Enteromorpha prolifera) it was shown that kelp are more resistant to the influence of oil carbohydrates while red and green algae are less resistant. Under the short-term influence of oil toxins photosynthesis is depressed and respiration increases, under long-term influence the rate of growth is reduced. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Marine Biology Springer Journals

Abstract

On the basis of experimental research on the influence of crude oil on basic functional characteristics (growing speed, photosynthesis, and breadth) of macroalgae of the Barents Sea (Laminaria saccharina, Fucus vesiculosus, Ascophyllum nodosum, Porphyra umbilicalis, Palmaria palmata, and Enteromorpha prolifera) it was shown that kelp are more resistant to the influence of oil carbohydrates while red and green algae are less resistant. Under the short-term influence of oil toxins photosynthesis is depressed and respiration increases, under long-term influence the rate of growth is reduced.
