Notes on the pleomorphism of Scenedesmus intermedius Chod

Nagy-Tóth, F.


Scenedesmus intermedius CHOD. collected from puddles in the Danube water-meadow and introduced in pure culture was grown subsequently in Benecke's, Witsch's and Knop-Pringsheim's media in static run, as well as in Kuhl-Lorenzen's medium and its mixtures with waters from the Chemical Fertilizers Factory and the Leather Factory under intensive (bubbled) conditions. A lot of morphological and physiological variations depending on life conditions experimentally assured were recorded and were discussed in terms of pleomorphism and taxonomical relations as well.
