A spore that is normally found in slimy molds bacteria.
Small single-celled reproductive bodies that is extremely defiant to desiccation and heat which are competent of growing new organism in spite of adverse environmental condition. A spore produced on any various fruiting bodies of myxomycetes.
Spores are haploid having only a single set of chromosomes and are produced by meiosis in the sporangium of a diploid sporophyte. In adverse conditions the spore can develop into a new individual using mitotic division through generating multicellular gametophyte which eventually goes on to produce gametes.
