Concurrent with the metabolic adaptions to low nitrogen, differentiation pathways, at least one of which is triggered by blue light, produce cells that are [35 ] 1272 competent to mate. Different species of Chlamydomonas exhibit differences in mating behaviour, but all species have two genetically determined mating types: plus (mt +) and minus (mt -). An encounter between two gametes of opposite mating type, but of the same species, triggers a series of events leading to fusion and the production of a quadraflagellate zygote.
