Quantitative assessment of the major limitations on avitad of Spirulina platensis in avigax raceways. Laboratory techniques for the culturing of microalgae. Chlorophyll a Fluorescence in Aquatic Sciences: Vonshak is known internationally mainly for his contribution to the development of the biotechnology for mass culturing of the blue-green algae cyanobacteria Spirulina under large-scale conditions.

Over-production of dihomo linolenic acid by a mutant strain of Parietochloris incisa more. Role of light and photosynthesis on the acclimation process of the cyanobacterium Spirulina platensis to salinity stress.

The major organism studied was Spirulina or under it scientific name Arthrospira platensis. All articles with dead external links Articles with dead external links from September Infobox person using alma mater Articles with hCards.

It begins with a heading 1 called “Registration Form”. Australian Journal of Plant Physiology. Mixotrophic growth modifies the response of Spirulina Arthrospira platensis Cyanobacteria cells to light.


A large collection of strains collected during the years from all over the world is used in our studies. Does astaxanthin protect Haematococcus against light damage?

When productivity is defined by the ability to utilize the available solar radiation that drives photosynthesis, the production protocol must be optimized to meet this requirement. Optimization of g-linolenic acid GLA production in Spirulina platensis. Effects of salinity stress on photosystem II function in cyanobacterial Spirulina platensis cells C Lu, A Vonshak Physiologia plantarum 3, This volume has been translated to Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese and Russian. In a nutshell the work so far points out that our original approach taken some 35 years ago of treating algal growth outdoors in terms of light limitation or a process governed by one main limiting factor was a naive attempt to simplify things.

Initial stages in the onset of senescence in tobacco leaves. Professor Vonshak is involved in few activities outside of the University served as the director of the Ben-Gurion Heritage institute, he is the academic advisor for the Ramat-Negev International training center for Desert-Agriculture.

Refereed articles in scientific journals: Optical properties of dense algal cultures outdoors and its application to remote estimation of biomass and pigment concentration in Spirulina platensis cyanobacteriaJ. A new tubular reactor for mass production of microalgae outdoors.

The main activities in my group along the above mentioned line are: DCMU-resistance mutation confers resistance to high salt stress in the red microalga Porphyridium sp. Physiology, Cell-biology and Biotechnology. Sub-optimal morning temperature induces photoinhibition in dense outdoor cultures of the alga Monodus subterraneus Eustigmatophyta.

Laboratory techniques for the cultivation of microalgae A Vonshak Handbook of Microalgal Mass Culture, The concept was developed as part of the approach that sustainable development of drylands requires the need to develop new innovative biotechnologies that will make use of the special environmental condition of drylands and increase the water use efficiency as compared to conventional agriculture methodologies. Use of a solid support in the study of photosynthetic activity of Spirulina platensis.

Cultivation of Spirulina using secondary treated starch wastewater. It is therefore suggested that tannins are plausible candidates for the anti-dermatophytic effects of T.
