Chytrids have a life cycle much like many of the other fungi's. They have both sexual and asexual abilities as is shown in this diagram. For asexual reproduction the sporangia releases zoospores that germinate into a sporophyte. For sexual reproduction, once the fungi starts meiosis the sporangium starts to germinate which then releases haploid zoospores which then germinate into a young gametophyte. Once that matures it is paired with a female gamete that combines to form a fertilized zygote.
