Experimental populations of Chlamydomonas were selected in Light (photoautotrophic) or Dark (heterotrophic) environments. Each population was a clone, founded by a single spore and propagated vegetatively thereafter. A heterogeneous environment was simulated by mixing Light and Dark lines in each growth cycle and redistributing them between the two environments in the next cycle. Some lines maintained permanently in the Dark evolved greatly increased growth within fewer than 300 generations, at… CONTINUE READING
