Fungal reproduction. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the tip of a branch of a conidiophore (one type of fungal reproductive structure) with a conidia (spore) emerging from the tip. The spore is a reproductive structure that is released to drift in the air and land elsewhere to form a new fungal body. This is a conidiophore from the pathogenic fungus Fusarium oxysporum, which causes wilt disease in tomato and carnation plants.
