Diplobiontic: alternating generations present, gametophyte (haploid) and sporophyte (diploid); the sporophyte and gametophyte may be similar (isomorphic), as in Ulva and some Cladophora species (both genera being members of the Chlorophyta), or dissimilar (heteromorphic), as in a species of Bryopsis (Chlorophyta) and in Laminaria (belonging to the Phaeophyta); meiosis is sporic in diplobiontic life cycles.
