Any container which can be closed by a cover, it is possible to use, as a damp chamber. A disposable plastic cup of Petri – the container. It can be thrown out after use. Sporofora of miksomitset can develop on a cover or a wall of a damp chamber. When the plastic cup of Petri is used, the part of plastic with the fructifying body can be cut out from ware simply. Nevertheless also glass cups of Petri are quite good.
As their existence is not known to most of people, myxomycetes has small impact on the person. Only the plazmodioforovy considered above can harm to economic cultures. Some miksomitseta are eaten.
The season of formation of sporofor for the majority of types of miksomitset in moderate areas (regions) begins at the beginning of summer and proceeds all fall. While some types form disputes during the full period, others fructify seasonally. In the east to North America, Lycogala epidendrum it can be found from early summer to late fall.
It is not necessary to add water to cultures. It can lead to the wrong development of sporofor, and also to development of a mold (mushroom razlichna which are capable to suppress development of miksomitset, even to destroy them.
The piece of filter paper or paper towel needs to be cut off by the size of a chamber and to place in the basis. Further it is necessary to place samples (bark, leaves, or rods) over filter paper so that they closed the basis, but were not imposed at each other. Bark has to be placed by an external surface up. It is necessary to add enough the distilled water that the sample was closed. Then, close the container, and postpone it for days that water was absorbed.
Slime molds are most usual in wood ecosystems where is available various substrate material like bark, stubs and the fallen-down leaf. However, myxomycetes can is where there are vegetable remains. There are water activities of miksomitset. Didymium difforme is capable to passing of full life cycle under water. Plasmodiums are observed in cups of water flowers.
Now about ten childbirth and a little more than 65 types of this class is known. Most of representatives are rather simple on morphology and of vegetative bodies — ameboid are characterized microscopically small.
Phylogenetic communications of representatives of this class still are clear. Some scientists pull together them with protozoa of a ; others, based on lines of similarity in their structure and development to primitive mushrooms — intracellular parasites, carry them to mushrooms; the third, proceeding from features of zhgutikovy stages, them with slime molds, including this class the evaded branch a of slime molds changes in which, in particular loss of sporonosheniye, resulted from a parasitic way of life. Thus common features with some primitive mushrooms should be considered as convergence under the influence of living conditions.
The container has to be marked with type of a sample and date. The wax pencil or a marker are ideal for this purpose. Next day, water has to be merged and cultures have to remain in a diffused light at the room temperature.
In laboratory allow mature copies to dry, deleting the moisture which is condensed on a container cover. After drying, the copy can be pasted in the marked box for continuous storage. The label has to contain information on specific accessory, a substrate on which occurred fructification, location, date and a name of the collected. It is possible to enter serial number and a name of the defined.
