Life Cycle of Ulva XI Biology Chapter 9 Kingdom Protista #Life #Cycle #Ulva #Biology #Kingdom #Protista. Introduction The haplodiplontic life cycle of the multicellular green alga Ulva mutabilis (F^yn, 1959) is shown schematically in Fig. Diplontic Life Cycle: The plant body is sporophyte and develops sex organs. Sex organs produce gametes by meiosis. The sporophytes prodüce zoospores by a meiotic sporulation division independent of beinghaploid or diploid (Hoxmark and Nordby, 1974). 26875).Grows in intertidal areas exposed to air during low tide, in shallow water near shores, or attached to other seaweed species such as Sargassum (Ref. your own Pins on Pinterest During the first phase, adults produce spores by meiosis. It is edible and is often called 'Sea Lettuce'. The spores settle and grow to form male and female plants. Ulva Life Cycle: (sporic meiosis)-Haploid and Diploid forms alternate-Sporophyte > haploid zoospores via meiosis > zoospores become haploid gametophytes > produce gametes > gametes release into ocean to fuse > become diploid zygotes > zygotes grow into sporophyte. Complete the generalized alternation of generations diagram below using the following terms: gametophyte, zygote, mitosis, sporophyte, spores, and meiosis. Ulva sp. The thallus of ulvoid species is flat and blade-like and is composed of two layers of cells. Dec 2, 2015 - This Pin was discovered by Aerobe. This includes the life cycles of many protozoa, all fungi, and some algae types. The growth response of Ulva lactuca L. to different combinations of phosphorus and nitrogen was followed using discs cut from the expanded region of mature plants. Discover (and save!) It is thus that same zygotic cell that later undergoes meiosis. In haplontic life cycle, the zygote is the only diploid (2n) stage, and mitosis occurs only in the haploid (n) phase. 80758).Also has the potential use as animal feeds in the form of ground meal (Ref. The gametes unite and develop into adult plants. In this article we will discuss about the life cycle of laminaria, explained with the help of suitable diagrams. Ulva: Sea lettuce. This type of life cycle is found in majority of Chlorophyceae like Chlamydomonas, Ulothrix, Oedogonium, Spirogyra, Chara etc. are a group of multicellular green algae that exhibit an alternation of generation life cycle as found in land plants. and all members of Xanthophyceae. This is a small genus of marine and brackish water green algae. Pattern # 2. Edible. Used as medicine and source of vitamins E, A, and B1 (Ref. During the second phase, the male and female plants produce gametes by mitosis. This life cycle is also known as monogenic life cycle. The haplontic life forms produce the gametes through mitosis. Order Laminariales of Laminariaceae: This order contains the largest and most elaborately organized plant body of all algae. After fertilization a zygote is formed: this cell is the only diploid cell in the entire life cycle. Addition of either NO 3-N or PO 4-P stimulated growth, optimum levels being 0.6 g/m 3 for both nutrients. Reproduction and Life Cycle. Sea lettuce goes through two reproductive phases. 80758).Often detached and free-floating at midtide (Ref. Species with hollow, one-layered thalli were formerly included in Enteromorpha, but it is widely accepted now that such species should be included in Ulva.. Diagram, Formula and Economic Importance - Duration: 7:00. 801). The members of this order, better known as kelps, are predominant plants of cold water. A haploid life cycle is found in most fungi and in some green algae … l. Gametes develop into sporophytes, either by fusion or parthenogenetically.
