sporulation

 [spor″u-la´shun]
formation of spores.

spor·u·la·tion

(spōr'ū-lā'shŭn),
The process by which yeasts undergo meiosis, and the meiotic products are encased in spore coats.

spor·u·la·tion

(spōr'yū-lā'shŭn)
The process by which yeasts undergo meiosis and the meiotic products are encased in spore coats.

sporulation

The production or release of spores.

sporulation

a form of asexual reproduction in which specialized cells become surrounded by a tough, resistant coat and then separate from the parent plant. These SPORES are able to withstand severe environmental conditions and when conditions improve they germinate to produce new plants by repeated MITOSIS. Sporulation is common in fungi.

Based on counts of conidia, we found that isolates of Beauveria did not differ significantly in their sporulation rate, with values from 0.06 x [10.sup.8] conidia per mL (Bb6) to 1.53 x [10.sup.8] conidia per mL (Bb2 and Bb3) (Table 3).
