  • genera
  • With an increase in the number of taxa for which sequence data are available, there is evidence of an expanded DO clade that includes additional zoosporic (Bracteacoccus, Schroederia) and some strictly autosporic genera such as Ankistrodesmus, Scenedesmus, Selenastrum, Monoraphidium, and Pectodictyon.

  • description
  • Scenedesmus is not explained in the original description but seem to be from the Greek skene , a tent [Latin scena , from which the English scene and thus scenery), meaning a tent, stage, decorative setting or place] and desmos , a bond. (algaebase.org)

  • Even though effects of light/dark cycles on autotrophic and mixotrophic cells were not exactly the same, the optimal lipid productivities of Scenedesmus sp. (biomedcentral.com)
  • cells
  • Although spineless, the Scenedesmus subgenera cells have thick cells walls and mucilage, which may make them digestion-resistant. (wikipedia.org)
  • Cells defensively form these bristles when kairomones are detected, an infochemical released by Daphnia that Scenedesmus has evolved to recognize as a warning signal. (wikipedia.org)
