The cytology and reproduction of the flagellate Trachelomonas volvocina

The cytology and reproduction of the flagellate Trachelomonas volvocina

Trans Amer Microsc Soc 47(4): 434-443

The method of reproduction in T. volvocina is a process of binary fission which takes place after the organism has left its test. Nuclear division is similar, apparently, to that in Euglena agilis (Baker, 1926). Both rod-shaped and granular mitochondria are often present, but in some cases only rod-shaped ones are found. It is pointed out that Causey's (1926) hypothesis, that the shape of mitochondria is an index to their function in metabolism, can not be applied to the euglenoid flagellates as a group until further evidence is produced.
