Hydrodictyon

 

a genus of freshwater green algae of the order Protococcales. There is only one species in the USSR, H. reticulatum. The thallus is about 1 m long, and the plant resembles a free-floating saccular net. The sides of the loops are formed by separate multinuclear cells about 1.5 cm long. In asexual reproduction the zoospores (there are as many as 20,000 in a single cell), which are in the maternal cell, develop into a new net. The sexual process is isogamous.

El indice de Czekanowski y las simulaciones se calcularon con el programa "Time Overlap" con el algoritmo ROSARIO (http:// hydrodictyon.eeb.uconn.edu/people/willig/ Research/activity%20pattern.html), debido a que este ultimo mantiene la estructura ciclica del tiempo mientras genera los escenarios de simulacion y por ello, es adecuado para realizar los analisis de solapamiento temporal (Castro-Arellano, Lacher, Willig, & Rangel, 2010).
