About this book

Language: German

Detailed ultrastructural studies have been carried out on the morphology of chloroplasts and the flagellated cells, and about the relationships between the mouth apparatus, the cytoskeleton and the processes of cell division of green algae. They have close relationships between the Characeae, i.e. the family of stoneworts sensu stricto, on the one hand, and are dissimilar from simple built algae on the other hand with which they were previously classified in very different places in the system of green algae. Based on these findings, the existing class of Charophyceae been extended. Besides the Charales it now includes several more orders, namely Chlorokybales, Klebsormidiales, Coleochaetales (which will be dealt with in Volume 13). The Characeae are also close to the Zygnematales or Conjugatophyceae (Süßwasserflora: Volume 16 and Volume 17) which have many features of the representatives of the so-called "Landpflanzenastes" in their pedigree.

Summary in German:
Detaillierte Ultrastrukturstudien sind über den Bau der Chloroplasten und der begeißelten Zellen und über die Zusammenhänge zwischen dem Geißelapparat, dem Zytoskelett und den Vorgängen bei der Zellteilung der grünen Algen durchgeführt worden. Sie weisen auf enge Verwandtschaftsbeziehungen zwischen den Characeae, d.h. der Familie der Armleuchteralgen sensu stricto, einerseits und ihnen recht unähnlichen einfacher gebauten Algen anderseits hin, die früher an ganz anderen Stellen im System der Grünalgen eingeordnet waren. Aufgrund dieser Erkenntnisse wurde die bisherige Klasse der Charophyceae erweitert. Sie umfaßt außer den Charales jetzt mehrere weitere Ordnungen, und zwar die Chlorokybales, Klebsormidiales, Coleochaetales (die in Band 13 behandelt werden). Den Characeae stehen auch die Zygnematales oder Conjugatophyceae (Süßwasserflora: Bände 16 und Bände 17) nahe, die viele Merkmale der Vertreter des sog. «Landpflanzenastes» am Stammbaum haben.
