Question: so ome phyla of fungi produce two types of spores...

Question details

so ome phyla of fungi produce two types of spores: sexual spores and asexual spores. Mark all TRUE statements about these different spores below. Asexual spores are genetically identical to the fungal parent that produced them. Sexual spores are produced after two, genetically different hyphae come together, and plasmogamy, karyogamy, and meiosis take place. Sexual spores will be dispersed from the parent and germinate to form a new mycelium. Sexual spores are the products of meiosis, after gametes have fused to form a diploid nucleus. Asexual spores will be dispersed from the parent and will germinate to form a new mycelium. Sexual spores fuse to form a diploid cell or diploid nucleus. Sexual spores are more commonly known as gametes Sexual spores are genetically identical to the fungal parent that produced them. The sexual spores produced by a fungus will have different combinations of alleles from the parent fungi. Asexual spores are produced strictly through mitosis.
