The association between the ciliate Paramecium bursaria and symbiotic Chlorella spp. is mutually beneficial. However, this relationship is facultative mutualism because both the host and the symbiotic algae can grow by themselves. This association is easily re-established by mixing the two species together. Following algal mixing, some algae become enclosed in the digestive vacuole membrane of the paramecia to which both acidosomes and lysosomes fuse. To establish endosymbiosis, some algae… CONTINUE READING
