Abstract

This study examines the influence of the detergents “Obychnyi poroshok” and “Ariel” (at 0.1, 1, and 10 mg/l) on the growth and physiological state of the benthic marine microalga Attheya ussurensis. Cell number, growth rate, and oxygen productivity turned out to be the most sensitive characteristics for evaluation of toxic effects, while the pH of the culture medium and the contents of chlorophyll a and carotenoids were more tolerant to detergent. Toxicants in concentrations of 0.1 and 1 mg/l had a weak inhibitory effect on the microalga A. ussurensis; at 10 mg/l, the detergent Ariel exerted a greater inhibitory effect on the microalga than Obychnyi poroshok did.
