Glossary Term: Germ Pore

1. (In reference to a spore): A germ pore is a small hole (or pore) in the outer wall of a fungal spore through which the germ tube or hypha exits – upon germination. It can also be referred to as “apical germ pore,” which means the identical thing in mycology.
2. The germ pore is a thin spot in the wall through which the spore may germinate. This pore may be oblique or centered with respect to the spore axis.
