The CDC says that about 60 percent of the people who inhale the spore do not contract valley fever.
spore, another spinoff, taught players about the randomly branching paths evolution can take.
Further than this the spore alone has no power to go, and the prothallium is not truly the germ of the future plant.
The spores are globose or nearly so, with a large "nucleus" nearly filling the spore.
Budding (as in yeast) and spore formation are familiar to us in plants.
spore: a small body formed by a fungus to reproduce the fungus.
The spore germinates and produces delicate threads, which branch and increase by growth in extent, and form the mycelium.
The position and shape of the spore are constant for each kind of bacteria.
With the advent of bright sunny days and dry weather mycelium growth is checked and spore formation goes on rapidly.
The indusia are soon thrown off when the spore cases start to develop.
A small, usually single-celled asexual or sexual reproductive body that is highly resistant to desiccation and heat and is capable of growing into a new organism, produced especially by certain bacteria, fungi, algae, and nonflowering plants.
A dormant, nonreproductive body formed by certain bacteria in response to adverse environmental conditions.
A reproductive cell or group of cells, produced by some plants, that is capable of developing into an adult plant without combining with another reproductive cell. Plants also produce sperm cells. The spores of nonflowering plants are analogous to the seeds of flowering plants. (See asexual reproduction; compare sexual reproduction.) Fungi and algae typically reproduce by means of spores that are carried by the wind or some other agency to a new location for growth.
