Greetings spore (ts) fans,
Nothing personal, but this group has been pretty boring as of late. In an
effort to stimulate an exchange of speculation, I pose the following question.
What triggers a spore to germinate? Does it "sense" a rich nutrient
environment? If so, how does it do it? I thought spores are impregnable? How
long do yeast (and I mean all kinds of yeasts) spores remain viable in the
absense of nutrients?
Best wishes for platform and poster preparations,
