Abstract

Recent evidence has shown that algal cells acquire different flagella and a heterogeneous basal apparatus through the prolonged development of these structures over more than one cell cycle. A system for numbering algal flagella and basal bodies, which is based on developmental studies, is discussed along with the various means by which the flagellar/basal body developmental cycle can be determined. We review the information now available on development of the separate components of the flagellar apparatus-this comes particulary from the Chlorophyta and the Chromophyta-and attempt to elucidate any information which may help in phylogenetic comparisons. New data is provided on developmental changes in the cartwheel part of the basal body and basal body-associated connecting fibrils in green algae.
