The manual describes methoda for laboratory toxicity testing with marine unicellular algae. Principles of aquatic toxicity testing with algae are summarized. Methods for maintenance of algal cultures, choice of test species, estimation of population density, detection of living and dead cells, expression of toxicant effect, and bioaccumulation of toxicants are discussed. Further, terms related to algal toxicity tests, equipment needed for algal toxicity tests, and methods for preparation of algal growth medium are defined.
