Glossary Term: Tubes

1. The spore-bearing cylindrically-open structures of boletes, polypores, and some other mushrooms.
2. Tubes are used to hold spore-producing basidia. At maturity the basidia release large quantities of spores, which fall from the mouths of the tubes (the pores) into the air currents.
