The asexual and sexual reproduction of Ostreopsis cf. ovata was studied in the field and in cultures isolated from two locations in the Mediterranean Sea. Asexual division took place in the motile stage by the sharing of theca (desmoschisis). High cell-size variability and differences in division capability were detected in the cultures. Thecal analyses and nuclear division patterns allowed characterization of the different phases of dividing cells obtained during an in situ cell-cycle sampling… CONTINUE READING
