Zygote nucelus divides mitotically multiple times w/o cytokinesis 1. Diploid multinucleate plasmodium Reproduction is always sexual 5. Like cells fuse forming diploid zygote. Fertilization 4. Spores germinate in favorable conditions producing motile amoeboid or flagellated cells 2. Under harsh conditions makes fruiting body which produces haploid spores via meiosis 3. Spores w/ tough coat disperse through air and germinate in favorable conditions Figure 28.24 (Campbell et al.) 77 Clade: Amoebozoa Subclade: Cellular Slime Molds • 35 spp • Most of life cycle: solitary “amoebas” (a single cell w/ 1 haploid nucleus) • Reproduces sexually (i.e. join to form diploid zygote) • When food depleted amoebas aggregate (slug) and reproduce asexually 78 Cellular Slime Mold Reproduction Have Sexual and Asexual stages 6. Amoebas emerge from spore coat when conditions favorable 1. Two haploid amoebas fuse forming a diploid zygote (only diploid stage) which eats all other amoebas then forms outer wall. 2. Zygote divides via meiosis to 2 haploid inds. Each divides several times via mitosis to make 3. Wall ruptures multiple haploid inds. releasing new amoebas 5. Slug forms fruiting body and haploid cells divide asexually (mitosis) forming haploid spores Figure 28.25 (Campbell et al.) 4. When food is gone amoebas aggregate forming a “slug” (a colony of multiple inds.)
