Abstract

This study showed that multiple morphologies could be induced from sporangiospores of Rhizopus stolonifer in minimal medium. These included moniliform hyphae, septate hyphae and terminal budding yeast cells. When considered along the normal coenocytic filamentous growth form, the study showed that R. stolonifer could be polymorphic.

Key words: Rhizopus stolonifer, polymorphic, multiple morphologies.
