Abstract

COMPREHENSIVE culture experiments of algal spores and ova have been carried out, and still more are in operation as part of the programme of research of the Scottish Seaweed Research Association. The principal object of this work is to ascertain the minimum requirements for the development and healthy growth of zoospores and zygotes of the brown algæ, yet at the same time departing as little as possible from natural conditions.
