Slide 13

January 2012

This is a sporangium of a Zygomycete that shows you a big saclike structure. On the outside you see what looks like the wall has been removed and you see the spores that are there. At the very base of that, you see where the sporangiophore has then attached to that sporangium. In that whole big structure there will rupture and all of those spores will pour out into the environment and each one of those is capable of starting a new colony. So that is a sporangium of a zygomycete.
