Results indicated that under nutrient sufficiency O. ovata biomass accumulation increased significantly compared to N and P deficiency and also that N limitation severely affected growth.

The highest growth rates were recorded at 30 °C.

Cellular contents and the atomic ratios of C, N and P were higher in the cells grown at 20 °C than in those grown at 30 °C.

O. ovata cell volumes increased at 20 °C.

N deficiency significantly increased cell toxicity.

Toxicity per cell was higher at 20 °C, but per carbon was highest at 30 °C.

The highest carbohydrate production was found in conditions of N deficiency and at the lower temperature.

I wish I could find a whole copy for reading, but at least the abstract gives all the results!
