Bioluminescent Dinoflagellates, Living

$9.50

Description

Pyrocystis sp. Bioluminescence can be observed in this mixture of marine dinoflagellates. These dinoflagellates begin to glow when agitated and are common in tropical waters. Their bioluminescence is an unusual defense mechanism and provides a great opportunity to discuss animal adaptations.

Each unialgal culture contains approximately 100 mL of material. This culture requires a high light level of 200 to 400 foot-candles of fluorescent light 18 to 24" from the culture in 12-hr cycles. Optimal medium: Bioluminescent Dinoflagellate (item #153757). Optimum growth temperature: 22° C.

Note: Bioluminescent dinoflagellates may not bioluminesce upon arrival; they may need a week or more to recover bioluminescent ability after being shipped. See "Carolina® CareSheet: Bioluminescent Dinoflagellates" (on the Resources tab) for more information.
