Description

The movie, produced by the University of Melbourne's Jeremy Pickett-Heaps, depicts sexual reproduction in simple algae captured in time-lapse video over two hours. One cell becomes quite amoeboid as it squeezes through the narrow fertilization tube that the partner cells have just built between them. The movie won third place in the 2009 Olympus BioScapes contest. Video streamed by www.AllthingsScience.com
