Uroleptus conjugatión...video

Post by fpelectronica »

In this video we see the process of conjugation of the ciliate Uroleptus
Despite their fierce appearance, is a ciliate Uroleptus harmless, feeds mainly on diatoms and algae aumque wasted no other foods such as Euglena

Uroleptus ciliate belongs to hipotricos-with few cilia-
The combination is a system of reproduction among ciliates, meiosis occurs and a subsequent exchange of genetic information between two individuals
