The reproductive cells of molds.
Usually unicellular and microscopic, spores are produced by protist molds, fungi, and plants and are able to develop into new individuals. Spores are able to survive without food or water for long periods. Most fungi spend part of their life cycle as hyphae and part as spores.
reproductive units or specialized cells that provide the primary means for dispersal and survival; many fungal (mold) spores are capable of long term dormancy and are therefore referred to as resistant spores or resting spores
microscopic reproductive structures, either sexually or asexually produced, and consisting of one to several cells, but not hundreds of cells
Some bacteria turn into small, usually single-celled reproductive bodies that are resistant to heat and are capable of growing into a new organism.
Microscopic dormant "eggs" formed by some pathogens that are very hardy, and usually survive cooking and other sterilization techniques.
An inactive form of bacteria or other organisms containing material that can reproduce active bacteria. Bacterial spores are usually much more difficult to kill than active bacteria.
Bacterial spores are bacteria in a dormant protective state which can survive boiling at 100°C for up to four hours and are resistant to many chemicals.
reproductive bodies, usually microscopic, that are produced by mushrooms, plants, bacteria, and Protozoa and that are widely dispersed.
The very small "seeds" released by mold and fungi.
A reproductive cell or aggregation of cells capable of developing directly into a gametophyte or other body without uniting with another cell;sexual spores formed as a result of meiosis occurring are often called meiospores; spores produced by mitosis may be referred to as vegetative spores.
Impervious structures formed by some cells that encapsulate the cells and protect them from the environment; haploid cells that can survive unfavorable conditions and germinate into new haploid individuals or act as gametes in fertilization.
The reproductive body of ferns and other non-seed plants – analogous to a seeds.
A small specialized structure that can grow into an organism, the dormant state of molds.
seeds of mould or fungi
The reproductive unit of fungi. Spores function in the same way that seeds do for higher plants.
The reproductive cells of certain organisms and plants, including mold.
Certain kinds of bacteria are capable of entering a resting phase during which they are very resistant to high temperatures and other adverse conditions. Bacteria in this phase are known as spores.

Tiny particles produced by fungi causing allergic reaction.
are the "seeds" that allow molds to reproduce.
Tiny seeds for many forms of plant life, including algae.
The "seeds" of the ferns and fern allies, normally formed in groups of four. Spores contain oil droplets and sometimes chlorophyll in additon to their nucleus. Ferns drop millions, oftentimes billions of spores during their lifetime but very few ever land in a spot suitable for growth.
What mushrooms have instead of seeds. Absolutely microscopic, but produced by the millions by each and every mushroom.
