Sexual reproduction is oogamous and either (3z(Bmacrandrous(3y (Bor (3z(Bnannandrous.(3y (BDifferentiation of oogonia and antheridia is initiated by highly asymmetric cell divisions. Fertilization is rapid and efficient. These aspects of their biology are vividly illustrated in color by time-lapse video microscopy.
