Using the parenchymatous ulotrichalean green alga Schizomeris leibleinii, a dependable technique for the classroom demonstration of zoospore production is described. The onset of zoospore release can be predicted accurately by controlling light, temperature, and medium. Large numbers of zoospores are released.

SCHIZOMERIS—A GROWTH FORM OF STIGEOCLONIUM TENUE (CHLOROPHYTA:CHAETOPHORACEAE) 1
TLDR
Sampling of the plant population of the lake and culture work showed that S. tenue has a high degree of polymorphism, and other forms of it which developed both in theLake and in culture were indistinguishable from Protoderma Kütz.
Influência do nitrato e fosfato no crescimento de Schizomeris leibleinii Kützing (Chaetophorales, Chlorophyta)
TLDR
Growth curves suggested that S. leibleinii grew rapidly at low concentrations of nitrate and phosphate, but the best development occurred at high nitrate concentrations, indicating nitrogen as the limiting nutrient of growth in culture.
The fine structure of the zoospores ofFritschiella tuberosa Iyeng.(Chaetophorineae, Chlorophyceae) with special reference to the flagellar apparatus
TLDR
The striking similarities of zoospores of Fritschiella andStigeoclonium suggest that despite its highly developed thallus FritSchiella is closely related to the genera StigeOClonium andDraparnaldia usually placed in the family Chaetophoraceae.
Scale Formation in Flagellates
TLDR
For most organisms in which scale biosynthesis has been investigated, the scales have been shown to arise within the cisternae of the Golgi apparatus.

Observations on the Morphology, Cytology, and Asexual Reproduction of Schizomeris leibleinii
TLDR
The nature of the basal cell is believed to be a more reliable taxonomic feature than either the arrangement of cells in multiseriate filaments or the number of pyrenoids per cell.

TLDR
Algal culture methods should profit from the adoption of synchronizing techniques now available for algae, and physiological studies of altered cell development should examine more thoroughly the roles of trace elements, vitamins and hormones, red in contrast to far-red light, and the biochemical changes in cell composition during growth.
