Do bacteria reproduce by spores?
Yes they do
Bacteria reproduce by simple cell division. Some fungi produce by cell division, such as the budding and fission yeasts. Many fungi reproduce by mitotic spores, that is spores produced asexually with mitosis. Many fungi also produce meiotic spores, or spores produced as the result of sexual reproduction and subsequent meiotic divisions. In most fungi, the spores are passively dispersed, but in a few, the spores are motile. They are propelled by a single whiplash flagellum.
Bacteria: Bacteria reproduce by binary fission or sometimes by budding, but do not undergo sexual reproduction. Fungi: Fungi reproduce both asexually, by budding or binary fission, as well by producing spores, which are called conidia when produced asexually, or basidiospores when produced sexually.
