I have problems finding information and references on zoospore release rates in Laminaria japonica.
There are a number of publications on sorus formation, development of early sporophyte stages, etc.
However, I haven't been able to find anything on zoospore release of this species...
I am looking for data (and references) on:
-number of zoospores released per unit sorus area and time, e.g.: xy zoospores cm-2 h-1
-number of zoospores released per whole sporophyte
-number of sporangia per unit sorus area.
Your help is much appreciated!
