Abstract [en]

The green flagellate Euglena gracilis was treated for seven days with concentrations of copper ranging from 0.02 mg L-1 to 2.0 mg L-1. No inhibiting effects were detected in any physiological parameters measured. In general, it seems that enhanced copper concentrations stimulated photosynthetic efficiency (PE) of E. gracilis. Concentrations of copper reported to be critical for the other algae studied (from 0.10 mg L-1 to 0.14 mg L-1) did not show any severe negative effects on E. gracilis. An unusual trend was observed where an increase in PE was followed by an increase in light irradiance necessary to achieve light compensation point. High capacity of E. gracilis to adapt to copper stress is being discussed as a possible explanation for the trends detected.
