What is spore formation?(definition)

Spore formation is the mode of asexual reproduction in some organisms like fungi in which it gives rise to a globular structure known as sporangia, which contains spores. The sporangia burst to release spores and each of these spores germinates to  produce a new individual.

Spore are protected by a thick wall when conditions (such as humidity and temperature ) are unfavourable. Once the conditions for germination are favourable, these spores burst out of a thick wall, start multiplying, and grow into new plants.

What are spores?

Spores are a type of reproductive structures produced asexually. Spores are covered with a hard protective coat.

What are the advantages of reproducing through spore formation?

  • Spores can withstand unfavourable conditions such as high temperature and low humidity. This property of the spores makes them survive for a longer period of time.

  • Spores are light in weight, which helps them to travel in the air. This is the reason for the spoilage of food kept in close proximity.

  • How do spores give rise to a new organism? Under favourable conditions, a spore germinates and develops into a new organism. Spore formation also occurs in plants such as moss and ferns.
