Whereas the meiospores (the haploid cells resulting from meiosis) of land plants are covered with desiccation resistant sporopollenin walls, the meiospores of algae are not.
In situ studies of Laminaria solidungula have shown that at low temperatures, this species develops novel physiological adaptations to light limitation, which include initiating new frond growth, completing more than 90% of its annual linear growth, and releasing meiospores in darkness during the nine-month ice-covered period (Dunton and Schell, 1986; Dunton and Jodwalis, 1988).
solenopsae meiospores are monokaryotic, the 16S rRNA gene is typically present in multiple copies within the genomes of microsporidia, either as tandem repeats (Kawakami et al.
Red algae produce two types of nonmotile spores that can settle on plates, attach and grow into small plants: carpospores (zygospores) and tetraspores (meiospores) (Destombe et al.
