Bread mould is a spore-producing plant.
What are spores?
Spores are reproductive cells in plants, algae and other protists; and fungi. They are typically single-celled and have the ability to develop into a new organism. Types of mould that grow on bread include Aspergillus, Penicillium, Fusarium, Mucor, and Rhizopus
Types of pores
- Asexual spores (e.g. exogenous spores produced by Conidia oidia)
- Sexual spores, such as Oospores and Zygote.
- Vegetative spores (e.g. Chlamydospores)
- Megaspores of plants (female gametophyte)
- Microspores of plants (develop to form male gametophyte)
