From light microscopic observations of the mating reaction in the marine brown alga Ectocarpus siliculosus it can be deduced that the foremost part of the front flagellum of the male gamete plays an important role in establishing initial sexual contact. The flagellar apparatus of both male and female isogametes of this organism has been studied electron microscopically using negative staining technique, with special attention focused onto the whiplash tips (“acronema”). The fine structure of… CONTINUE READING
