Member holdingsOur collection currently holds more than 900 strains of algae, including over 600 strains of cyanobacteria. Other groups include Chlorophyceae, Bacillariophyceae, Chrysophyceae, Dinophyceae, Conjugatophyceae and Cryptophyceae. Most strains are isolated from lakes, often toxic water blooms, but other habitats include rivers, coastal waters and soil from Norway and international localities, even Svalbard and Antarctica. All strains are kept in liquid media with controlled temperature and light conditions. Available strains are listed on our website.
