Expert Answer:

Yeast cells exhibit great diversity with respect to cell size, shape and colour. Even individual cells from a particular yeast strain of a single species can display morphological and colour heterogeneity. This is mainly due to alterations of physical and chemical conditions in the environment. The shape of yeast cells may be spherical, globose, ellipsoidal, elongate to cylindrical with rounded ends, more or less rectangular, pear-shaped, apiculate or lemon-shaped, ogival or pointed at one end, or tetrahedral.
