Fungal spores, Water content.
The water content of fungal spores has been found to be surprisingly variable due to different experimental procedures followed and the different environmental conditions prevailing during the course of fungal sporulation. Several interpretations regarding the advantageous and adaptive features in relation to low water content have been put forward to explain the survival of fungal spores as survival is longest under conditions of environmental dryness. Since, the fungal spores are minute and microscopic bodies and not very easy to handle, it has always been a very difficult task to evaluate the exact quantity of water found therein. The present paper is an attempt to evaluate the water content of fungal spores in the light of recent researches.
