3. dispersal vs growth

3.1. low atm support growth

3.2. spores better adapted to environment

3.2.1. low metabolism rate

3.2.2. produce in high rate

3.2.3. thick cell walls - against dessication

3.2.4. some pigments - protect against UV

3.3.1. xenospores form on or in specialized structures

3.3.2. endospores form within the vegetative cell

3.4. xenospores and endospores

3.4.1. very low metabolic rate

3.4.2. thick cell wall - protect against dessication
