Abstract

Scanning electron micrographs are presented of five species of Staurastrum, one species of Cosmarium, five species of Micrasterias, and three fairly stable, cultured variants of M. thomasiana (uni- and triradiate, and diploid forms). The range of some typical morphological variations encountered in cultures is illustrated. The use of scanning electron microscopy in investigations into morphogenesis of new semicells after cell division is also mentioned.
