 To explore the
factors that
enable
spirogyra to
reproduce to a
greater extent
 Conditions in
which they
reproduce most
efficiently
 Filamentous green
alga
 Grows in stagnant
bodies of water
e.g ponds
 Eukaryotic
 Photosynthetic
requires light
to survive
 Spirals of
chloroplast
 Hence the name
Spiro-gyra
 Kingdom
Conjugation
Two filaments of
Spirogyra form
conjugation tubes
These tubes
link at
specific
filaments of
the two
Spirogyra
Male filament sends
its DNA
through the tube to
the other filament,
the female
 Data for 1.1
completely
different
from all data
after the 11th
of June
 Varies
greatly with
2.1
 2 Live
