Meiosis in the Oogonium and Antheridium of Pythium debaryanum Hesse

Abstract

ACETO-ORCEIN squash preparations of a culture of Pythium debaryanum Hesse were found to have nuclei in division in the oogonia and the antheridia (Figs. 1 and 2). The stage of division was usually rather more advanced in the oogonium than in the antheridium. The oogonia had 2–6 nuclei undergoing division, the antheridia usually one, occasionally two.
