Summary Introduction

To explain: The reason that the spore dispersion of fungi is analogous with the pollen dispersion of plants.

Concept introduction: The production of new individuals from the parent is the most essential property that every living creature must possess. There are several methods that are used to carry out this process of reproduction; many follow reproduction by means of sexual phase in their life cycle, and many others follow asexual reproduction like spore formation and regeneration by budding. Spores that are produced by fungi and pollen grains that are produced by plants are very similar in their function.

Explanation of Solution

Most of the plants use pollen grains produced from their flowers (reproductive part) as a tool for the production of their next generation. This is very analogous with the spores produced by the fungi. Both the spores and pollen need a medium to carry them to the most appropriate place where they initiate the production of new ones...
