  16. Carotenoid
    a yellow or red pigment found in plastids of organisms like the brown algae
  17. Fucoxanthin
    a brown pigment characteristic of the Phaeophyta and which gives them their color
  18. Conjugation (zygomycetes)
    fusion of two equal gametangia to form zygosporangium and zygospore

  22. Euglenophyta
    • most unicellular and mobile by flagella, some colonial and sessile
    • eye found in the cytoplasm
  23. Euglenophyta flagella
    • flagella have fine hairs called tinsel flagella
    • two flagella, one or both may emerge from the anterior invagination
  24. periplast or pericle
    system of grooved strips inside the plasma membrane
  25. Rhodophyta cell walls
    • calcium carbonate in some
    • agar or carageenan
    • No flagellated cells anywhere in this life cycle
    • Many reds have pit connections in walls between cells
  26. Rhodophyta pigment, chlorophyll
    • chlorophyll a only
    • phycobillins absorb blue and green light
  27. Starch in Rhodophyta
    • starch deposition occurs outside chloroplast - most red algae do not contain pyrenoids
    • Floridian starch - a short polymer of glucose
  28. Starch in Charophyceae
    • production of starch inside chloroplasts
    • possession of cellulosic cell walls
  29. Chlorophyll in Charophyceae
    chlorophyll a and b
  30. Flagella in Charophyceae
    • asymmetrical
    • have lateral or sub-apical flagella that extend at right angles from the cells
    • have multi-layered structure present at base of flagella
  31. Charophyceae life cycle
    • Monobiotic, haploid life cycle
    • production of dormant zygote
  32. Flagella in Ulvophyceae
    inserted apically
  33. Chlorophyll in Chlorophyta
    chlorophyll a and b
  34. Starch in Chlorophyta
    • Stores food reserves as starch
    • Starch stored in plastids -> in chloroplasts
    • Cell walls contain cellulose
  35. Flagella in Chlorophyta
    • 2-4
    • inserted apically
    • whiplash
    • equal length
  36. Zoospores
    unicellular mobile asexual reproductive cell; meiosis, syngamy not involved
  37. Autocolonies
    self produced copy of the parent colony
  38. Autospores
    unicellular, asexual reproductive cell that is non-mobile
  39. Fragmentation
    breaking up of a colony; most comon in filaments
  40. Types of Chlorophyta
    Charophyceae, Ulvophyceae, Chlorophyceae
  41. Cell divison in chlorophyceae

    • Animal-like Protistaprotozoa
  45. Hyphae in Zygomycota
    aseptate, coenocytic
  46. Hyphae in Ascomycota
  47. Hyphae in Basidiomycota
    septate, with dolipore in many species
  48. Asexual reproduction in Basidiomycota
    budding, conidia (non-motile spores including urediniospores), fragmentation
  49. Asexual reproduction in Zygomycota
    non-motile spores (sporangiospores)
  50. Asexual reproduction in Ascomycota
    budding, conidia (non-motile spores), fragmentation
  51. Monobiontic Haploid
    • A life cycle with only one free-living generation; there is no alternation of generations
    • meiosis occurs in the zygote
    • zygotes are the only diploid cells
  52. Monobiontic Diploid
    • Meiosis occurs in the gametangia
    • Vegetative phases are diploid
    • Gametes are the only haploid cells.
  53. Dibiontic
    • Meiosis occurs in sporangia
    • Haploid spores develop into haploid vegetative stage (gametophyte generation)
    • Diploid zygotes develop into diploid vegetative stage (sporophyte generation)
    • a life cycle with two free living generations; alternation of generations
  54. Isomorphic
    gametophyte and sporophyte are morphologically similar
  55. Heteromorphic
    gametophyte and sporophyte are not morphologically similar
