Isogamous organisms

... but no allele differentiation in matching-type regions, like the positive + and negative - mathing types in some algaes), and with a sexual reproduction. In isogamous organisms we have a small genetic differentiation between the gametes, as the + and - one I said. Is there an organism like ...

1 small multiple choice question [population dynamics]

... phase (if conditions continue to be favourable), similar to what the human population has been going through. If a population is small enough, the reproduction rate can be so low that there is a lag phase before any initial increase in population size. I.e. births = deaths for the initial period.

Hello, For my advanced Biology project, I would love to create protoplasts and then create a hybrid plant through somatic fusion, but just a few quick questions first: Do somatic fusion hybrids display characteristics of both cell donors at the same time? Or is it similar to a dihybrid cross, where ...
