Spores

Do you know that mushrooms leave spore prints in nature? Next time, look closely at a wet leaf directly underneath a mushroom cap. The colored dust covering it is actually thousands, perhaps millions, of spores left behind.

Scientists use spore color as a way to identify mushrooms and toadstools. Making a spore print can help us see spore color.
