The cosmopolitan presence of Ulva spp. is partly due to its great reproductive ability, but relatively little information is available for the radiation conditions triggering reproduction. In the present study, we investigated the effect of photon irradiance, photoperiod, and spectral qualities of light on growth and reproduction of Ulva pertusa. During 8-day culture of discs cut from marginal parts of the thallus of U. pertusa, the size of the thallus discs was greatest at 10 μmol m-2 s-1,...[Show more]
