 Title    Cell Fusion by Simulated Atmospheric Discharges: Further Support for the Hypothesis of Involvement of Electrofusion in Evolution  
 Abstract    Electrofusion of mesophyll cell protoplasts of Avena sativa was induced by simulated atmospheric discharges. It is shown both experimentally and theoretically that the potential differences which occur at quite long distances from the point of lightning stroke are large enough to induce fusion. Besides electromagnetic waves which are emitted during lightning (G. Küppers and U. Zimmermann, FEBS Lett. 164, 323 (1983)) cell fusion may have also occurred directly by means of the voltage built-up on the earth during evolution in response to a lightning stroke.
