Bread mould sporangium. Scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a young fruiting body (sporangium) of the common bread mould Mucor. The sporangium contains the fungi's reproductive spores which, when released, will circulate freely in the air. When they alight on a favourable medium, the spores germinate to produce a network of hyphae, which function to absorb food for growth and spore production. A sporangium grows at the end of a specialised hypha called a sporangiophore. When the spores are mature, the sporangium's wall disintegrates, releasing the spores. Magnification: x1100 at 7x10 inch size.
