Sorus Sentence Examples
The sorus is frequently protected by an outgrowth from the surface or margin of the leaf called the indusium.
Group of spore-cases (sorus) on back of leaf (X 4).
Among the simplest cases are the sheet-like aggregates of sporogenous hyphae in Puccinia, Uromyces, &c., or of basidia in Exobasidium, Corticium, &c., or of asci in Exoascus, Ascocorticium, &c. In the former, where the layer is small, it is often termed a sorus, but where, as in the latter, the sporogenous layer is extensive, and spread out more or less sheet-like on the supporting tissues, it is more frequently termed a hymenium.
