Species-Specific Responses to Combined Thermal-irradiance Stress in Microalgae – “Each is to its Own”


Corresponding author email: (Patrick Neale)


This article is a highlight of the study by Stamenkovic and Hanelt in this issue of Photochemistry and Photobiology describing the high-irradiance photophysiology of several strains of freshwater chlorophyte microalgal genus, Cosmarium. These strains exhibit distinct differences in how combined thermal- high irradiance stress is managed which can be related to the temperature and irradiance conditions of their native habitat.
