The life history of Coleochaete scutata Bréb. was analyzed by Feulgen microspectrophotometry, a technique measuring DNA content in individual nuclei. By correlating nuclear DNA content with morphological structures or stages in the life history, changes in ploidy level are revealed. 

FEULGEN MICROSPECTROPHOTOMETRIC INVESTIGATION OF THE LIFE HISTORY OF FRITSCHIELLA TUBEROSA(CHLOROPHYCEAE) 1

A Feulgen microspectrophotometric analysis of successive generations of Fritschiella tuberosa Iyengar revealed an asexual repeating of one generation rather than an obligate alternation of isomorphic

WHAT DO WE KNOW ABOUT CHAROPHYTE (STREPTOPHYTA) LIFE CYCLES? 1

TLDR
The charophyte algae are the closest living relatives of land plants and their life cycles are usually characterized as haploid with zygotic meiosis, but unusual phenomena have been reported in comparatively well‐studied taxa.

Parka decipiens and land plant spore evolution

The morphology and ultrastructure of the spores of the enigmatic Lower Devonian plant Parka decipiens are briefly described and previous interpretations of the plant are discussed. It is suggested

Coleochaete and the origin of land plants

TLDR
It appears that further study of Coleochaete and other eharophyeean algae may eontribute to the authors' understanding of how a number of plant features, ineluding reproduetive ones, originated.

MICROFLUOROMETRIC MEASUREMENT OF DNA IN EUDORINA ELEGANS AND E. CALIFORNICA (CHOROPHYCEAE) 1

The fluorescent dye 2,5‐bis (4′‐aminophenyl (1′))‐1,3,4‐oxidiwle (BAO) was compared to the Feulgen procedure as a method for quantitative comparison of DNA levels in two species of Eudorina. The BAO

Nuclear dna and karyotype variation in species of codium codiales chlorophyta from the north atlantic

TLDR
Chromosome numbers for three species of Codium from Bermuda were presented and fragile subsp.

OCCURRENCE AND PHYLOGENETIC SIGNIFICANCE OF “SPECIAL WALLS” AT MEIOSPOROGENESIS IN COLEOCHAETE

TLDR
Within germinating zygotes of Coleochaetepulvinata, meiospores are individually surrounded by chamber walls which are ultrastructurally and chemically different from vegetative cell walls of the same species, suggesting that the charophycean green algal ancestors of land plants may have possessed spore development preadaptations influential in the evolution of walled spores, an important plant adaptation to terrestrial life.

MEIOSIS IN THE OOMYCETES: I. A MICROSPECTROPHOTOMETRIC ANALYSIS OF NUCLEAR DEOXYRIBONUCLEIC ACID IN SAPROLEGNIA TERRESTRIS

TLDR
A cytological and cytochemical examination of Sapro Legnia terrestris Cookson was undertaken to resolve the conflict of opinion regarding the life cycle of fungi in the Saprolegniaceae, i.e., whether meiosis is zygotic or gametic, and the evidence is completely consistent with gametic meiosis.

SYNAPTONEMAL COMPLEXES IN RED ALGAE 1, 2

The presence of synaptonemal complexes in the nuclei of young tetraspore mother cells is described for the first time in the red algae. Synaptonemal complexes were found in Janczewskia gardneri

Spermatogenesis in Coleochaete scutata

TLDR
Antheridia are produced from the middle of June until themiddle of October in the region in and about Chicago, and more than four antheridia may be developed from one vegetative cell.

TLDR
Evidence has recently been presented that DNA is considerably less variable in amount, and it is suggested that the amount of DNA per nucleus is probably constant in all the nuclei of any one species.
