Difference between Microspores and Megaspores: Comparison Table


microspores vs megaspores

Microspores vs Megaspores
(Similarities and Differences between Microspores and Megaspores)

Microspores and megaspores are sexual spores produced by vascular plants (some Pteridophytes and all Gymnosperms and Angiosperms) for sexual reproduction. Both microspores and megaspores on germination produce the respective gametophytic generations. The gametophytes on maturation produce sex organs and gametes to establish the fertilization and thus to complete the life cycle. The production of different types of spores with different functions and sexuality is called Heterospory. The heterosporous condition was first evolved in Pteridophytes and it is considered as the prerequisite for seed habitat.

The present post discusses the similarities and differences between microspores and megaspores with a comparison table.

Similarities between Microspores and Megaspores

Ø  Both microspores and megaspores are sexual spores.

Ø  Both are produced by the diploid sporophytic plants.

Ø  Both are haploid spores produced after reduction division of spore mother cells.

Ø  Both spores are produced in specialized structures called sporangium.

Difference between Phase Contrast Microscopy and Differential Interference Contrast Microscopy: (Easy Short Notes)


Phase Contrast vs DIC Microscopy

Phase Contrast Microscope vs Differential Interference Contrast Microscope
(Similarities and Differences between Phase Contrast Microscope and Differential Interference Contrast (DIC) Microscope)

Phase contrast microscopy and Differential Interference Contrast (DIC) microscopy are two advanced optical light microscopy techniques to produce high contrast images of unstained and living cells. Both the microscopes utilize various contrast enhancing techniques to produce high contrast images.

Phase contrast microscopy is an optical-microscopy technique developed by Frits Zernike in 1934 to produce high contrast images of unstained live specimens. The phase contrast microscopy works by converting the phase shifts of light passing through a transparent specimen to detectable brightness changes in the image.

Differential Interference Contrast (DIC) microscopy, also called as Nomarski Interference Contrast (NIC) Microscopy, was first invented by Georges Nomarski in 1952. DIC microscopy uses more sophisticated contrast enhancing techniques than phase contrast system. It works by separating a polarized light source into two orthogonally polarized mutually coherent parts which are spatially displaced at the sample plane, and recombined before the final image formation. DIC produce more pronounced contrast difference than phase contrast image.
