Abstract Briefly reports results of project comparing response of Antarctic, tropical and temperate microalgae of similar taxonomic grouping to ultraviolet radiation stress, based on their growth and fatty acid profiles. UVA had no marked effect, but growth of culture decreased with increasing duration of exposure to UVB. Percentages of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) decreased with increasing dosage of UVB in most cases, but not for Antarctic and tropical Chlorella.
