This video will talk about the last characteristic feature of fungi that is the different methods of reproduction.

• Vegetative reproduction can take place by fragmentation (eg. Rhizopus), fission (eg. Yeast) and budding (eg. Yeast).

• Asexual reproduction is by spores called conidia or sporangiospores or zoospores.

• Sexual reproduction is by oospores, ascospores and basidiospores.

• All the different spores are produced in a distinct structure called as fruiting bodies

• Plasmogamy can be defined as the fusion of protoplasms between two motile or non-motile gametes.

• Karyogamy is nothing but the fusion of two nuclei means production of diploid cell (2n condition).

• When the diploid nucleus is divided into haploid spores, it is known as meiosis.

• These asexual and sexual spores will grow on the suitable substratum to form a new mycelium.
