sporogenesis


Also found in: Dictionary, Encyclopedia, Wikipedia.

spo·rog·o·ny

(spō-rog'ŏ-nē),
The formation of sporozoites in sporozoan protozoa, a process of asexual division within the sporoblast, which becomes the sporocyst within an oocyst; follows fusion of gametes (gametogony) and zygote (sporont) formation.
Synonym(s): sporogenesis, sporogeny
[sporo- + G. goneia, generation]

However, the number of conidia acquired by the host is probably the key factor that increases propagation of conidia by sporogenesis. Mortality and sporulation levels gradually increased when concentrations of conidia increased, even when the humidity condition that occurred in the closed diet cup (> 80% RH) was consistent for all treatments (Table 1; Fig.

In spite of great diversity, especially in the complexity of the sporoderm, the fundamental components of sporogenesis are the same in free-sporing plants, where the walled spores serve to disperse new plants, and in seed plants where the walled microspores have evolved into pollen grains for transmission of male gametes.
