  1. Multicellular, eukaryotic, lacking flagella. Heterotrophic through absorption (generally saprobic). Reproduce by means of non-motile spores produced either asexually or sexually.
    Kingdom Fungi
  2.  Be familiar with the life cycles of the three major phyla of the fungi.
    Note that plasmogamy and karyogamy are separate events in those life cycles.
  3. Kingdom Fungi's Divisions?
    Division Zygomycota, Division Ascomycota, Division Basidiomycota
  4. Black bread molds, Rhizopus (#23) Haploid hyphae, non-septate (no cross walls). Produce zygospores having a thick, protective coat that forms around the merging of hyphae (plasmogamy) from two separate individuals, which then form sporangium asexually.
    Division Zygomycota
  5. Sac fungi: Yeasts (Saccharomyces (#21- budding) & Schizosaccharomyces ( #22)), red bread mold (Neurospora), Penicillium (#26- making antibiotics and cheeses), Aspergillus (#29), ergots, mildews, morels, cap fungi (Peziza #24). Septate hyphae. Produce an ascus, a finger-like projection which after karyogamy, meiosis and mitosis will produce 8 ascospores. These structures(some dikaryotic) may be found in the fruiting body. May also reproduce asexually by conidiospores (conidia).
    Division Ascomycota
  6. Club fungi Mushrooms (Coprina #25), shelf fungi, puffballs, rusts and smuts Mycelium may be formed of hyphae that are dikaryotic (2 nuclei) which become a basidiocarp (fruiting body) that releases spores. Following karyogamy and meiosis the basidium produces 4 basidiospores each.
    Division Basidiomycota
    These are NOT taxonomic groups.
  8. Observe specimens (crustose, foliose, fruticose) and slide #27 shows 3 layers. Organisms formed by a symbiotic relationship between unique types of fungi and cyanobacteria or green algae. The relationship between the two is uncertain. Reproductive structures called soredia. The fungal component is extremely difficult to culture separately while the alga grows well alone
  9. Mutualistic relationship between soil fungi (Phylum Glomeromycota) and plant roots. Fungus provides inorganic nutrients for the plant and the plant provides organic nutrients (carbohydrates, etc.) to the fungus. Endomycorrhiza = arbuscular mycorrhizae (#40)
