In phylum Zygomycota, thick-walled structures in species that reproduce sexually, zygospores develop in these
- sexual reproduction
- Sexually produced resting spores
- "Sporangium bearer"

2 haploid nuclei do not fuse for some time. "2 nuclei"
Meiosis in Fungi is _______.
Zygotic: formation of zygote nucleus
Gametangium (pl: gametangia)

- *May form gametes or simply contain nuclei functioning as gametes.
type of mycorrhizae where the fungi penetrate the plant root cells and increase the uptake of nutrients by both plant and fungal cells.

Contain 2 compatible haploid nuclei
What is the difference between Hymenomycetes and Gastromycetes?
- Hymenomycetes produce their basidiospores on a distinct fertile layer (hymenium) which is exposed before the spores are mature.
- Gastromycetes have no distinct hymenium visible at the time the basidiospores are released
Define and explain the parts of a mushroom in class Hymenomycetes.
- Pileus: Cap
- stipe: stalk

feeds off of dead animals
What makes the class Teliomycetes different than Basidiomycetes?
The do not form Basidiomata
- Fungi that do not go into the cells of roots
- Increase surface area and absorption
- grow in between cells creating hartig net
in ectomycorrhizae when the fungi grow in between the cells, this allows for a "net" to absorb nutrients to release into cells
fungi with no known sexual state, artificial group of fungi AKA fungi imperfecti
Alternation of generations
alternate between gametophitic and sporophitic generations

5. found sometimes in marine habitat but usually freshwater
Compare and contrast Cryptomonads and Euglonoids.
- Similarities: require certain vitamins, pigmented photosynthetic members and phagocytic members that consume particles, no cell wall,
- Differences: Cryptophyta: may have proteinaceous layer under plasma membrane, have a chloroplast endoplasmic reticulum, live in cold water (freshwater or marine)
- reduced nucleus (meaning "looks like a nucleus")
- remains of the nucleus of red algal cell that was ingested and enslaved for photosynthetic capabilities.

True or False: In sexual reproduction of an Oomycete, the male nuclei from the antheridia travel down the fertilization tubes of the oogonia, nuclear fusion occurs creating a zoospore.
FALSE. The thick-walled zygote formed is called an oospore which develops into a hypha, into a zoosporangium to renew the cycle.
