I am a student of M.Sc. degree in Marine Biology based in Iran and I am
doing my thesis on the effect of human impact on zooxanthellae on hard corals
of the Persian Gulf. As this is a new effort in my country, I have not
access to any past experience in this filed and therefore I am somehow
confused in the method for zooxanthellaes chlorophyll a content.
After reading the absorbance of the samples at 750,664,647 and 630nm by spectrometer, I use this formula:
c(chlorophyll a)=11.85 E664 _ 1.54 e647 _0.08 E630
I used 10 ml of 90%.the diameter of cuvvett is 1.6 cm.The original amount of blastate is 20 ml and I took 10 ml for chlorophyll analysis.
Please explain what shall I do after this step?
Any leads would be appreciated.
