Fungus - Fungus - Sexual reproduction: Sexual reproduction, an important source of genetic variability, allows the fungus to adapt to new environments. The process of sexual reproduction among the fungi is in many ways unique. Whereas nuclear division in other eukaryotes, such as animals, plants, and protists, involves the dissolution and re-formation of the nuclear membrane, in fungi the.
Reproduction in fungi takes place by asexual or sexual means. Production of spores is observed in both these types of reproduction, though the genetic makeup of the spores varies.

Sexual spores of fungi. As a result of sexual reproduction sexual sores are produced. Sexual spores are fewer in number than asexual spores. Types of sexual spores i. Ascospore: It is usually single celled produced in a sac called ascus (plural;asci) and usually there are 4-8 ascospore in an ascus but the number may vary from species to species.
Reproduction. Fungi reproduce sexually and/or asexually. Perfect fungi reproduce both sexually and asexually, while imperfect fungi reproduce only asexually (by mitosis). In both sexual and asexual reproduction, fungi produce spores that disperse from the parent organism by either floating on the wind or hitching a ride on an animal.
