If you have a fluorescence microscope you could try staining with
fluorescein diacetate. See Soderstrom, B.E. (1977). Vital staining of
fungi in pure culture and in soil with fluorescein diacetate. Soil Biol. &
Biochem. 9: 59-63.

Does anyone know a method for distinguishing viable and non viable
fungal spores (ascospores) ? Staining or something ?
Another problem of mine is to distinguish between spores which will
germinate and spores not germinating without acivation.
