Reproduction in Fungi
Fungi reproduce by all the three modes, i.e., vegetative, asexual and sexual.
- Vegetative reproduction : it occurs by the following methods
- a) Fragmentation : The mycelium breaks up into two or more fragments due to mechanical injury decay or some other reasons. Each fragment grows into independent mycelium.
- b) Fission : Here, simple splitting of vegetative cells into two daughter cells takes place by simple constriction.
c)Budding : Some fungi like yeast produce small outgrowths, i.e., buds from their vegetative body. Eventually, the buds are cut off from parent cell and mature of form new individuals.
