A dynamic introduction to the life cycle of this unique plant. The exercise provides a clear illustration of organ and tissue differentiation in the developmentally simple gametophytes. Unlike many higher plants, gametophyte sexual development, swimming sperm, fertilization, and embryo development are directly visible using a stereomicroscope and simple culture equipment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from new idea-with a 'hook' Ordered this as a 'hook' to get the class into producers. The idea of 'mating' intriqued the biology students. The kit is easy, sets up for future labs and concepts and intriqued even the challenged students. As the spores opened, students raced to class to count them, and the the 'oohs' and 'ahs' kept them learning. The dome was very effective and sturdy, the spores sprouted well and the wild /plain mix was great.
