Studies on the anaerobic growth of a biotype ofChlorella vulgaris

  • E. H. Battley
  • S. Haditirto


A description is given of an anaerobic biotype ofChlorella vulgaris, the general mode of growth of which appears to be similar to that of the non-sulfur photosynthetic bacteria, even though the photosynthetic pigments are those of a green alga. It only grows heterotrophically in the light in the presence as well as in the absence of O2. Photosynthetic O2 production is lacking.
