ABSTRACT
Catenella impudica (Mont.) J.Ag is an important species for human consumption from estuarine regions of Asia. Seasonal shedding of carpospores and tetraspores was quantified between January and December 2004 for natural populations of C. impudica. Vegetative and tetrasporophytic plants were available throughout the year but gametophytic plants were observed only from September to May. Tetraspore shedding was observed throughout the year and carpospores shedding was noticed only during the months when material was available. Hydrographical conditions of the estuary such as low water temperature and low salinity are correlated to the formation and release of carpospores and tetraspores in C.impudica
Key words: carpospores shedding, Catenella impudica, Godavari estuary, tetraspore
