Goals
To culture phytoplankton in laboratory and outdoor, open and closed systems, to supply the reguired physical and chemical conditions to culture phytoplankton and zooplankton, to determine the phytoplankton ve zooplankton species and their basic biological needs. To define culture methods, microalgal isolation methods, growth and measure. Prepare the growth medium and inoculate to the culture. Harvest the phytoplankton and zooplankton, know the harvesting methods.
Content
Culture conditions of phytoplanktonic organisms, continuous and batch culture methods, microalgal culture and sterilisation, microalgae isolation techniques, laboratory conditions, physical and chemical conditions necessary for the culture of microalgae, description of algal growth, parameters of algal growth and mesurements, the medium preparation and nutrients, inoculations, harvesting, microalgal culture in the ponds outdoor, description of photobioreactor, zooplankton culture, phytoplankton and zooplankton species cultured.

Learning Outcomes
1) Counts the physical and chemical condiitions required for the phytoplanktonic organisms.
2) Explain the reasons for culturing microalgae, provides brief information on the history of the first species cultured.
3) Counts the number of necessary conditions in the laboratory, batch and continuous culture defines and explains the methods.
4) Defines sterilization, counts sterilization methods and explain the principles, outlined how it works, describes the equipment used for sterilization.
5) Describes the cultures of algae growth, makes the definition of growth, defines the growth parameters, makes the analysis of chlorophyll a, counts cell, measures optical density of the culture.
6) Counts the microalgal isolaion methods and explains them.
7) Defines the continuous and batch culture, prepare the growt medium.
8) Defines the isolations techniques of microalgae, prepare the solid medium using agar, makes planting.
9) The selection criteria will be cultured algae, microalgae species widely from culture,
10) Describes the general principles of the outdoor culture, the hotobioreactors and the ponds.
11) Makes chlorophyll a analysis, count cell, measures optic density of the culture, makes dry matter of analysis
12) Explain the rotifer culture, describes the rotifer culture conditions.
13) Makes chlorophyll a analysis, count cell, measures optic density of the culture, makes dry matter of analysis
14) Explains Artemia culture conditions and hatching artemia cysist.
15) Defines the Daphnia culture conditions.
