• The majority of fungi can reproduce both asexually and sexually.
  • This allows them to adjust to conditions in the environment.
  • Fungal spores can develop into new haploid individuals without being fertilized.
  • Spores may be dispersed by moving water, wind, or other organisms.
  • Some fungi even have “cannons” that “shoot” the spores far from the parent organism.
  • This helps to ensure that the offspring will not have to compete with the parent for space or other resources.
