Autumn is the season of reproduction for most plants and other organisms such as fungi. The fruits and seeds of trees may be familiar, but the reproductive parts of mosses, lichens and slime moulds, for example, are perhaps less well-known. These are usually very small, but are often quite beautiful, as well as being highly specialised and adapted to providing the best possible opportunity for reproduction to be successful.
