Chapter 32 - Fungi - Figure 32.11 - Data Analysis: 1

Answer

1.31x$10^8$spores/1.10cm$^2$=1.19x$10^8$ spores/cm$^2$ 6.87x$10^9$spores/8.37cm$^2$=8.2x$10^8$ spores/cm$^2$ Thus, the second basidiocarp produced around 7 times more spores per unit area than the first.

Work Step by Step

Just find the ratio of spores to area in each case, being careful about exponents and division. Then compare the two to see which structure produced more spores.
