Abstract

SUMMARY: A low proportion of zoospores from dark-grown plants of encyst if the suspension of zoospores is maintained in darkness, but visible light causes increased encystment. A lag in the response to light is eliminated by incubating spores in darkness prior to exposure. Light-induced encystment is insensitive to cycloheximide, but ceases when illumination ceases. Light has no effect on encystment of zoospores derived from light-grown plants; these will encyst even if kept in darkness.
