S/n Primary Zoospores Secondary Zoospores 1 flagella anteriorly inserted flagella posteriorly inserted 2 encyst by withdrawal of flagella Encyst by shedding Flagella 3 Swims for minutes Swims for hours 4 tuft of flagella that formed the tripartite tubular hairs in encysted state encysted zoospores shows boat hook hairs for attachment

Continuation (iii) In some species, only secondary zoosporangium are produced with the primary once suppressed e.g. Dictychus . The zoospores after a period of swimming, they encyst in response to stress and germinate to release a secondary zoospore which swims, eventually germinates to form a thallus.

Continuation During sexual reproduction, the somatic hypha matures and produce gametangia (antheridium and Oogonium). This is followed by gametic copulation leading to the fusion of egg nuclei of the oogonium and the sperm cells that travel through a tube. The fertilized oosphere forms the zygote which later organize into the oospore. The oospore germinates to also

Order - Peronosporales In habit, members of this order range from aquatic to amphibious to terrestrial way of life. Many species are parasite with a few living as saprophytes. Some of the parasitic species can also survive as saprobes following the death of their host. Sporangia is not elongated but rather globose or oval in shape and may function as detachable/deciduous, germinable conidia in some species. Reniform/kidney-shaped, monoplanetic zoospores are produce in the Peronosporales Oogonium structure is differentiated into inner ooplasm and outer periplasm. Sporangiophore is more distinct in the Peronosporales indicative of their higher evolutionary position compared to the Saprolegniales.

Continuation Oogonium in the Peronosporales contains a single egg cell. The Order is distributed into 3 Families on the basis of their sporangia and sporangiophore (i)Pythiaceae – haustoria absent or branched, facultative parasites, sporangiophore undifferentiated from mycelium e.g. Pythium debaryanum . (ii)Peronosporaceae – sporangiophore distinct and branched, sporangia singly or in clusters, haustoria varied or branched e.g. Peronospora parasitica . (iii) Albuginaceae – sporangiophores unbranched, produce a chain of conidia in basipetal succession, haustoria is knob shaped e.g. Albugo candida

Family - Pythiaceae Members of this Family cause serious disease of plants and animals. Produced varied shape of sporangia and few exhibit sporangial proliferation The Family include genera like Pythium and Phytophthora .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
