Reproductive systems in the myxomycetes : a review

  title={Reproductive systems in the myxomycetes : a review},
  author={Jim Clark and Edward F. Haskins},
A review of reproduction in the myxomycetes reveals that they have a basic one-locus multiplealleleic heterothallic mating system, which controls syngamy between haploid amoeboflagellates to produce the diploid plasmodium. However, each morphologically defined species contains a number of biological sibling species that can’t interbreed with each other and are centered in different regions of the world. Also, these morphospecies generally contain numerous nonheterothallic strains that can… CONTINUE READING
