Our scientists have been working with algae for over a decade. This is a premium culture set that is very well taken care of. It is robust and will perform in your laboratory or classroom.
Students will use the scientific method to learn about the importance of algae in aquatic systems: the process of photosynthesis, algae's role in the food web, algae's sensitivity to water quality, and algae's impact on water quality through events like harmful algal blooms (HABs). This lesson offers endless opportunities for discussions on topics like nutrient acquisition, effects of climate change, human impacts and nutrient pollution, dead zones and HAB’s, aquaculture, resource limitations, trophic transfers, predator prey interactions, and much more.
The kit contains:
