What are Tracks?

The plural of spore is spores. Spores consist of a single cell surrounded by a cell wall. In spores that are reproductive, this cell wall becomes watertight and tough when in the resting state. This acts as a kind of survival mechanism as the spores can survive drought, temperature fluctuations and other adverse conditions. During germination, spores that were formed asexually may assume unicellular or multicellular forms that can then contribute sexual reproduction to the species. The bulk of single-celled organisms reproduce by both simple mitosis and spore formation. An example of reproduction by budding as by spore formation is yeast. Some mushrooms have a thin cell wall, while others have a thicker shell. That thickness determines the speed of germination. This is subject to outside conditions.
