DescriptionGermination of chlamydospores is difficult to accurately assess when chlamydospores are attached to remnants of supporting hyphae. We developed two approaches for closely observing and rigorously quantifying the frequency of chlamydospore germination in vitro. The plate marking and scanning method was useful for quantifying germination of large numbers of chlamydospores over a 7-day period. A method involving time lapse photography of microscope slide cultures was effective for visualizing the process of germination over shorter time periods.
