Fig. 14. Toxicity of various clones of Alexandrium tamarense as a function of growth rate. These clones were grown at 15°C under 3000 lux in medium T1 (Ogata et al. 1987b). Toxicity is expressed in mouse unit (MU) according to Horwitz (1984) where 1 MU represents the dose to kill a 20 g male mouse within 15 min. The growth rate (μ2) is estimated from cell counts during the exponential phase according to the method of Fukazawa et al. (1980).
