Abstract and keywords
Abstract (English):
Perspectives of using fluorescence of chlorophyll methods for the assessment of toxic effects of nanomaterials on phytoplankton is analyzed. Measuring of light dependence curves of fluorescence allows changes in energy storage in photosynthetic processes in algal cells to be detected at early stages of phytoplankton exposure to modern nanomaterials.
