Fungus-like protists typically reproduce asexually through the release of spores. These types of protists, such as slime mold, are unicellular organisms that may form large masses of cells under the right conditions. More » Science Biology Botany

Fungus-like protists have characteristics of both unicellular and multicellular life forms. They are often found on decaying organic matter, and reproduce by creating spores. They include slime molds and water molds. Sli... More » Science Biology Botany

A fungus-like protist obtains food by crawling over it and enveloping it, taking food particles into itself in a manner similar to how amoebas eat. These protists often consume decaying plant matter on damp forest floors... More » Science Biology

Ferns reproduce through their spores, which are produced in very small spots called sori. Each sorus consists of numerous tiny, spherical granules that contain sporangia. Once the sporangia mature, they burst and release... More » Science Biology Botany

Seedless plants reproduce by spores, rhizomes, plantlets and fragmentation. Nonflowering plants such as ferns and fungi do not produce flowers; therefore, they do not produce seeds. More » Science Biology Botany

Some plants are able to reproduce without releasing seeds asexually using a specialized stem called a rhizome or by releasing spores. Bulb plants, such as Persiant violets, crinum lilies and wood hyacinths, are just a fe... More » Science Biology Botany
