If food sources begin to run out, hyphae respond by making spores. Why?

The leading hypothesis is that spore production allows fungi to harvest food particles that are floating in the air.

The leading hypothesis is that spore production attracts animals, which can be used to transport the fungi to an area where more food is available.

The leading hypothesis is that fungi change feeding mechanisms once food can no longer be absorbed, and spore production is a by-product of this change.

The leading hypothesis is that spore production is favored by natural selection when hyphae are under nutritional stress.
