Protists

 

A volvox is comprised of numerous cells. These cells are called vegetative cells, and big circular objects found inside a volvox are called generative cells. Some volvox have more than one generative cells. These volvox's colors in this sample slide depend on stain's colors. A texture of a volvox seems to be rough, because vegetative cells appear as tiny dots spotted on the surface.

Generative Cell

Generative cells appear inside of the volvox. These cells are darker than the color of the surface, so they are distinct. Some volvox don't have generative cell, but some are have more than one generative cells.

Image Data Description

400x
Here are generative cells inside of the volvox. In this picture, two cells are not focus; it indicates that the generative cells' location is various.

400x
This generative cell appears to be translucent edge around it.

Vegetative Cell

Vegetative cells consist of the spherical volvox. Because countless cells are gathered together, the surface of the volvox appears to be rough. It is like dots appoted on a paper. 

Image Data Description

200x
Details of the cells that consist the volvox are quite clear; even nuclei are visible.

400x
Because the volvox is spherical, it is pretty hard to focus the surface of the volvox. Each cells contain nucleus, and these nuclei appears to be tiny dots.

Interesting Volvox

There are some volvox that doesn't seem to be similar to others. One volvox is not circular and its generative cells is amorphous. Another volvox's surface is similar to a bee hive's one.

Image Data Description

200x
This volvox's shape is not certain; also its generative cell doesn't appear to be circular.

400x
The surface of this volvox seems similar to a surface of bee hive.
