Ontogenetic diversity of colonies and intercellular cytoplasmic bridges in the algae of the genus Volvox


In all representatives of the genus Volvox, cells of cleaving embryos are connected by cytoplasmic bridges, which play an important role in the process of young colony inversion. However, during subsequent development, the intercellular bridges are retained not in all species of Volvox; the occurrence of the bridges in an adult colony correlates with the… (More)
