Abstract
Among the major groups of organisms (bacteria, fungi, nematodes and viruses) causing plant diseases, fungi are by far the most prevalent as pathogens. One characteristic of a successful pathogen is abundant pro­ duction of viable propagules. Reproduction (sporulation) of fungi whether sexual or asexual results in the production of spores whose minute dimen­ sions and resistant nature enable far ranging dispersal. Sampling studies have demonstrated the ubiquitous occurrence of fungal spores. Fundamental knowledge of reproductive processes in fungi will contribute to understand­ ing and eventual control of fungal diseases.
