What Did We Learn? ± Two gametophytes develop: Archegonia and Antheridia ± Mitten-Shape = Hermaphrodite, Light-bulb = male ± Spore starts un-differential; waits for environment ± Depending on strain/other spores   Self/normal  fertilization ± Self-fertilization = LOW genetic diversity = not as  favorable

What to Investigate?. .. - What effect does the type of environment have on spore  shape and type of fertilization (pH, Temperature, etc.) - Investigate how delicate the conditions have to be for  such an occurrence, and what factors increase or decrease  the likelihood of light-bulb-shaped spore production.
