Paramecium conjugation, 400X w.m.
Conjugation, a sexual phenomenon in which Paramecia of compatible mating types fuse temporarily and exchange genetic material, triggers the division of micronuclei of each conjugant via meiosis and transmission of haploid gametes from one cell to the other. The gametes of each organism then fuse to form diploid micronuclei. The old macronuclei are destroyed, and new ones are developed from the new micronuclei.
