    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    1.1This practice measures, by Pseudokirchnereilla subcapitata growth response, the biological availability of nutrients, as contrasted with chemical analysis of the components of the sample. This practice is useful for assessing the impact of nutrients, and changes in their loading, upon freshwater algal productivity. Other laboratory or indigenous algae can be used with this practice. However, Pseudokirchnereilla subcapitata must be cultured as a reference alga along with the alternative algal species.

    1.2This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. For a specific precautionary statement, see Section 16.

    1.3This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
