In the vast majority of Gregarines, however, the life-cycle is limited to gametogony and sporogony.
It is in these parasitic forms that we meet with the method of reproduction by sporogony described above.
When conjugation has taken place and sporogony is begun, the danger to the host is at an end.
The sporogony of this form (and hence its systematic position) remains at present, therefore, quite unknown.
In the flowering plants (anthophyta) sporogony has disappeared.
sporogony spo·rog·o·ny (spə-rŏg'ə-nē, spô-)
Reproduction by asexual division of a spore or zygote, characteristic of many sporozoans. Sporogony results in the production of sporozoites.
