Dung fungi, such as sordaria fimicola, generally reproduce sexually with ascospores discharged from mammalian dung after passage through herbivores their life cycle is thought to be obligate to dung, and thus their ascospores in quaternary sediments have been interpreted as evidence of past mammalian herbivore activity.
