Phylum Rhodophyta • The red algae – In warmer and deeper waters than brown algae – Most are filamentous with filaments so tightly packed they appear to have flattened blades or branched segments. Phylum Rhodophyta • The red algae Polysiphonia – Relatively complex life cycle involving three types of thallus structures – Nonmotile reproductive cells Chlorophyll acquisition, Glaucophyta Chlorophyll a, Phycobilins Rhodophyta Chlorophyta Chlorophyll a, Chlorophyll b Coleochaete Chara Hornworts Liverworts Mosses Ferns Gymnosperms Angiosperms Which of the following are most representative of the first Plantae (Archeaeplastidia)? A. Rhodophyta B. Glaucophyta C. Cyanobacteria D. Green algae What is the key difference between asexual reproduction (mitosis) and sexual reproduction (meiosis)? A. They are the same B. Crossing over C. Chromosome partitioning D. Cell division Introduction • Asexual reproduction - Production of cells identical in chromosomes with cells from which they arose • Sexual reproduction - In nearly all plants, some algae (cryptic) – Results in formation of seeds in flowering and cone- bearing plants – Gametes produced. • Egg and sperm unite to form zygote. Asexual and Sexual Reproduction Plantsdo BOTH to make offspring Comparing Mitosis/Meiosis On your own, review the stages in Bidlack Chapters 3 and 12 Mitosis Meiosis • Chromosomes replicate • Chromosomes cross-over and themselves undergo “reductive division” • Then undergo a duplication • One copy of each to • Four cells from two daughter cells successive divisions – Cells with half the – 1n -> 1n chromosome number of – 2n -> 2n parents – 3n -> 3n – Each cell rarely identical to original cell or each other. – 4n -> 4n • 1n -> 1n + 1n (extra mitosis) • 2n -> 1n + 1n • 3n -> 1n + 2n (usually) • 4n -> 2n + 2n Meiosis Review • Before meiosis, DNA molecules of each chromosome double. – Each chromosome has identical DNA molecules held together by a centromere. • Meiosis: – Division I (Meiosis I or Reduction Division) - Number of chromosomes reduced to half. – Division II (Meiosis II or Equational Division) - No further reduction in chromosome number. Alternation of Generations • Haploid (1n) - Cell with one set of chromosomes – Gametes • Diploid (2n) - Cell with two sets of chromosomes – Zygote • Polyploid - Cell with more than two sets of chromosomes – Triploid3n) - Three sets of chromosomes • Homologous chromosomes cannot pair properly, thus gametes typically inviable. • Navel oranges, seedlesswatermelons – Tetraploi(d4n) - Four sets of chromosomes • Potatoes,pasta wheat Alternation of Generations • Athat alternates between diploid sporophyte phase and haploidoduction gametophyte phase • BOTH the sporophyte and gametophyte can live independently • BOTH the sporophyte and gametophyte can be multicellular and look like a plant – Sporophytes developfromzygotesandproduce sporocytes. • Sporocyte undergoes meiosis - Produces 4 haploid spores Meiosis occurs Mitosis results in in specialized sporophyte growth cells to produce spores Mitosis results in Mitosis occurs in gametophyte specialized cells to produce growth Alternation of Generations – Gametophytes develop from spores. • Form cells or sexual structures in which gametes are formed by mitosis – Fertilization produces ygote. • Fertilization ( syngamy) = Fusion of gametes Alternation of Generations • First cell of gametophytegeneration is a spore, and last is a gamete. • Any gametophytecell is haploid. • First cell of sporophyte generationis a zygote, and last cell is a sporocyte. • Any sporocyte cell is diploid. Alternation of Generations • Change from sporophyteto gametophyte generation occurs as a result of meiosis. • Change from gametophyteto sporophyte occurs as a result of fertilization. For most of the plant section you MUST understand alternation of generations! Our discussions will revolve around the evolution of plant life cycles In alternation of generations… a) 2n gametophytes produce sporesby meiosis b) 2n gametophytes produce gametes by meiosis c) 1n gametophytes produce sporesby meiosis d) 1n gametophytes produce gametes by meiosis e) Gametophytes do not undergo meiosis The Theories of Evolution Underlie the T ree of Life Objectives • Understand how evolutionary theory was developed • Understand the primary theories of evolution • Understand the basic structure of the tree of life • Know and be able to describe the primary features of each kingdom of life Evolutionary Theory • An intellectual framework for understanding how life and biodiversity came to be • Utilizes the scientific method to test how evolution worked and is currentlyworking. • Utilizes a vast array of approaches and methods – “Modern synthesis” Jean Baptiste de Lamarck • Attempted to explain the relatedness or organisms recognizing • Attempted to determine a mechanism by which modern forms derived from ancient forms • Lamarckian hypotheses: – Inheritance of acquired characteristics – Multiple independent origins of species Why Darwin was different and revolutionary • Proposed a single common ancestor for ALL organisms • Natural selection • Implies descent with modification • Proposed a mechanism of evolution • Implies a heredity mechanism • Never actually answered what the “Origin of Species” is (ironically) Darwin’s Five Evolutionary Theories Evolution is ot a single theory. Modern evolutionary theory is a collection of many inter- related theories. Darwin’s five contributions 1. Perpetual change 2. Common descent 3. Multiplication of species 4. Natural selection 5. Gradualism Perpetual Change • Life is not constant over time – Extensive fossil record – Life forms over human history are constantly changing – Life forms over human life times are constantly changing • Life is not cycling between two, or several states • Life forms are constantlychanging in response to their environment • Thus, what is today will not necessarily be tomorrow Perpetual Change in Kansas Cretaceous: mosasaurs, toothedbirds Pleistocene: mammoths, giant ground sloths, sabre-toothedcats Common Descent • All organisms descended from a single common ancestor • Ubetween species assumed independent originsationships • Cbetween organismsdicts a tree like structural relationship • Korganisms back and infer their phylogenetic relationship through homology • Note: Darwin’s theories do not deal with the Origin of Life first cell deal with what happened after the Common Descent: Homology • At its essence homology means that like structuresin different organisms derived from their common ancestor • In the modern genetic era, we how have vast quantities of evidence demonstrating shared characters result from the genes of a common origin = homologous genes . Common Descent : Homology Character DNA Phylogeny Phylogeny Integrative Question to Ponder: Why the disagreement? Multiplication of Species • Variation between individuals in a populations leads to reproductive isolation • Reproductive isolation = eciation • Reproductive barriers form between individuals in a population – Requires a physical barrier t-breeding – Often occurs in geographically separate populations Eucidaris tribuloides Eucidaris thouarsii Rate of Evolution: Gradualism: Speciation occurs though the gradual accumulation of small, incremental changes. Punctuated Equilibrium : Rapid, episodic speciation Little change over time m Continual, T gradual change over Rapid change over time short time Gradualism Punctuated equilibrium Divergence Divergence Natural Selection: Process by which certain adaptations are favored over time, leading to evolutionary change. Five observations and three inferences of Darwin . 1) Organisms have great potential for reproduction (exponential growth) 2) Natural populations don ot grow unchecked (logistic growth ) 3) Natural resources are limited (K = carrying capacity) 4) All organisms show variation in characteristics 5) Variation is heritable and can be passed to offspring Three major inferences 1) Competition among individuals 2) Differential survival and reproduction = fitness 3) Natural selectionleads to new new adaptations and species (parallels toartificial selecti)n Rapid evolution in recent history Peppered Moth Biston betularia Changes in frequency of color morphs The Modern View of Evolutionary Theory: Neo -Darwinism Modern Synthesis Comprehensive tools = paleontology, biogeography, genomics, population genetics, embryology, behavior, and systematics Macroevolution= origin, radiation and extinction of species Microevolution= changes in gene frequencies among generations at short time scales Antibiotic-resistant bacteria VRE = Vancomycin -resistant nterococcus MRSA = Methicillin -resistant taphylococcus aureus 1. Genetic drift Bottlenecks among cheetahs in Africa 2. Nonrandom mating Inbreeding in prairie chickens Processes of Microevolution 3. Natural selection Stabilizing Disruptive Directional 4. Migration Genetic drift and selection promote divergence among populations. Migration promotes mixing.

Three Non-exclusive Theories of Multicellular Evolution • Symbiosis – Two un-like organisms form a symbiotic relationship ultimately leading to the evolution of a multicellular organism – Also known as co -evolution – Few direct examples, but endosymbiosis was a key event allowing Eukaryotes to transition from mostly unicellular to large differentiated multicellular organisms • Aggregative Cooperation – Like symbiosis, but with two of the same species – Complex to evolved • Cellularization – A single cell undergoes incomplete cell division, mitotic (or meiotic) products stay together – The simplest to evolve – Probably the most common mechanism of multicellular evolution Bacterial Examples of Multicellularity • Myxobacteria(slime bacteria) – Domain Bacteria, Phylum proteobacteria, Class Delt- proteobacteria, Order Myxococcales – Chondromycescrocatus • Rod shaped unicells • When nutrients are limiting aggregate and form fruiting bodies • Some cells form stalk • Some cells sporulate, stalk elevates cells to promote dispersal – Which multicellularity theories apply? • Aggregative cooperation Bacterial Examples of Multicellularity • Cyanobacteria – Anabaena • Domain Bacteria, Phylum Cyanobacteria, Order Nostocales Heterocyst • Long chains of like cells • Arise by incomplete fission • Vegetative cells perform oxygenic photosynthesis • Some cells can differentiate into heterocysts . – Anoxic – Nitrogen fixation in differentiated tissue because, – Nitrogen fixation is O2 sensitive – Which multicellularity theories apply? • Cellularization Bacterial Examples of Multicellularity • Actinomycetes – Streptomyces – Domain Bacteria, Phylum Actinobacteria, ClasActinobacteria • Filamentous • Produces aerial hyphae • Look like mold • Like all Actinobacteria often found in soil and decomposing material • Many antibiotics are produced by these species • Tetracyclin, Streptomycin, Chlorampnenicol – Which multicellularity theories apply? • Cellularization Archaeal Examples of Multicellularity • Methanosarcina – Domain Archaea, Phylum Euryarchaeota, Class Methanomicrobia • Anaerobic • Makes methane gas • Grow in extreme environments • Grow as colonies • Mechanisms to keep O2 out of the inside of the cells? – Which multicellularity theories apply? • Cellularization Volvocine algae • Domain Eukaryote, Kingdom Plantae, Phylum Chlorophyta • Closely related species ranging from unicellular (Chlamydomonas ), to colonial multicellula (onium), to cel- type specification (Pleodorina) to Germa-soma specialization (Volvox ) • Chlamydomonasand Volvoxhave nearly identical genomes • ~35 genes different, ~6-8 genes unique to Volvox • Even though they are algae, the biology of green algae is more similar to animals • Volvocine algae are NOT the ancestors or land plants • Which multicellularity theories appl? y • Cellularization Chlamydomonas Gonium Eudorina Pleodorina Volvox Unicellular Colonial ECM expansion Cell type specificationifferentiated tissues multicellular multicellular multicellular Germ/Soma multicellular ~<200 Ma Eukaryotic Examples of Multicellularity Cellular slime molds Dictyostelium discoideum – Domain Eukarya, Kingdom Amoebozoa, Superphylum Conosa, Phylum Mycetoza, ClassD ictyostelia – Look like mushrooms, but are NOT fungi – Social amoeba – Only unicellular amoeba reproduce sexually (very limited) – Unicellular • Unicells free from each other • Grow and divide asexually – Stress causes multicellular induction • Separate organisms aggregate • Form a mobile slug stage • Differentiate into a fruiting body – Which multicellularity theories apply? • Aggregative cooperation Eukaryotic Examples of Multicellularity • Trueslime molds • Myxomycetes – Domain Eukarya, Kingdom Amoebozoa, Phylum Mycetoza – Look like mushrooms, but are NOT fungi – Amoeba – Growth stage is as a zygote • Multiple nuclei • Single cell, not social! – Stress causes gametogenesis • Form stalks and fruiting bodies • Spores then dissipate – Which multicellularity theories apply? • Cellularization • Aggregative cooperation Eukaryotic Examples of Multicellularity • Choanoflaggelates and Sponges – Monosigabrevicollic (Choanoflaggelate ) • Domain Eukarya, Kingdom Opisthokonta, Phylum Choanozoa • Unicellular flaggelates • Range of species from unicellular to colonial multicelular – E.g.

High rates of apoptosis evolve, decreasing propagule size. (A and B) High rates of apoptosis evolve between transfers 14 and 60 in replicate The multicellular yeast cells form a “snowflake” morphology A single progenitor cell initiates a new colony that then grows outward They observe that the snowflakes have “holes” in them What might be causing the holes within the “snowflake” morphology? Ratcliff et al 2012 PNAS Some cells in the aggregates undergo programmed cell death (colored cells in micrographs) Thus, the authors observed division of labor (first step toward differentiated tissues) was observed In other words, cells within the cluster give up their reproduction, for the survival of their clonal neighbors!
