Abstract: 
The influence of temperature on growth and biochemical constituents of two species of Spirulina; Spirulina platensis and Spirulina fusiformis was studied. Various temperatures as 20, 25, 30, 32, 35, 37 and 40°C were investigated. Maximum specific growth rate of 0.141 was found at 32°C for S. platensis and that of 0.144 was found at 37°C for S. fusiformis. Both species showed negligib
