BIOLOGICAL EFFECTS OF TRITIUM ON THE UNICELLULAR GREEN ALGAE, ACETABULARIA CHLAMYDOMONAS, AND DUNANIELLA
The unicellular algae Acetabularia, Chlamydomonas and Dunaliella were grown in culture medium added with increasing concentrations of tritiated water (up to 1000 muCi/ml or 3.7 x 10**7 Bq/ml). Tritium exposure reduced cap formation in Acetabularia and provoked some morphological anomalies. However, in Chlamydomonas and Dunaliella, tritium had no significant effect on the growth rate. The radiation doses delivered by tritium to the three algal species are reported.
