Spores


Find Allergy Clinics »

Spores are the reproductive method most commonly associated with the various types of fungi, algae and some bacteria and plants. Spores conduct what is known as asexual reproduction. This means that a spore can develop into another complete organism without having to be cross-fertilized by another unit. They are released into the air with only a small amount of food to keep them viable until they find a suitable place in which to start developing into a new organism.
