Abstract
    Experiments have been carried out to determine the cellular concs of Na, K, Mg and Ca in Phaeodactylum. Evidence is presented showing that the ionic concs vary during different phases in batch culture and that cells become relatively richer in divalent cations towards the end of the growth period. Variation in external conc has little effect on internal conc of the cations studied and a hypothesis is suggested to account for the faster rate of growth in more dilute medium.
