Title: Studies on Physiological stress and their biochemical response in seaweeds
Authors: Kumar, Manoj
Keywords: Algae
Issue Date: 3-May-2012
Abstract: Seaweeds are assemblage of diverse group of plants predominantly occur in coastal waters. Owing to their sessile nature, intertidal seaweeds in general developed strategies to withstand diverse stresses resulting from variations in desiccation, ultraviolet radiation, salinity, temperature and anthropogenic activities (heavy metal pollution and other toxicants like Ionic liquids). The capacity of algae to tolerate different types of abiotic stress has been related to their vertical distribution along the intertidal gradient. Despite the basic scientific interest in physiological responses of algae to environmental stresses, the metabolic pathways involved and the fundamental biochemical responses implicated in the tolerance mechanisms have not been investigated in detail.
