This free digital download is on the removal of nitrate from water:
The goal of this study is to observe the removal of nitrate from the water over time by the microalgae. The formation of new biomass requires nutrients from the environment. For plants including algae, nitrogen is the second largest element behind carbon. Nitrogen can be supplied to algae cultures in the form of sodium nitrate. As nitrate it is easily measurable using a simple colorometric dip-stick test. Testing over time can show the rate at which nitrate is being removed from the system.
Algae survey kit includes 1.7mL or 50mL options for culture and a culture booklet:
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.
Some strains may not be available seasonally and alternatives will be found
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.
