SUMMARY Some features of the breeding system of two kinds of sympatric Somalian Euplotes crassus (Dujardin) (Ciliata Hypotrichida) populations, autogamous (a.) and non-autogamous (n.a.), were investigated together with the mechanisms which allow the persistance of this reproductive polymorphism. Conjugative reactions were best performed only between n.a. stocks, all heterozygous at mt locus, which in addition showed a very low mortality rate after conjugation. The a. stocks behaved differently… Expand
