Basidiomycetes l.jpg
Basidiomycetes

Characteristics:

  • Septate mycelium

  • Basidia and basidiospores

  • Clamp connections. Not all Basidiomycetes produce these, but when a fungus does it will always be a basidiomycete.

Basidiomycetes

Characteristics:

  • Two main groups, based on morphology of basidia.

    • Basidia are septate and deeply lobed

      Order Uredinales – the rusts

      • Produce all five spore stages – aeciospores, uredospores, teliospores, basidiospores and spermatia (aka pycniospores)

      • Important genera – Puccinia, Gymnosporangium

        Order Ustilaginales – the smuts

      • Produce only basidiospores and teliospores

      • Important genera – Ustilago, Tilletia

Basidiomycetes

Characteristics:

  • Two main groups, based on morphology of basidia.

    • Basidia are unicellular, non-septate: wood decay fungi

      Order Aphyllophorales (aka Polyporales) – the bracket fungi

      • Hymenium lines small pores on underside of sporophore

      • Important genera – Polyporus, Fomes

        Order Agaricales – the mushrooms

      • Hymenium lines gills (lamellae)

      • Important genera – Armillaria, Agaricus

5. Three types of hyphae

  • Primary hyphae – develops from a germinating basidiospore. Nuclear status = n

  • Secondary hypha – results from fusion of two primary hyphae. Yields a n+n cell that continues to grow as a n+n hyphae

  • Tertiary hypha – exactly the same as secondary hypha. n+n However it has thick walls that enable production of fleshy and wood sporophores

The rusts l.jpg
The Rusts

These are obligate parasites. Generally these require two host to complete their lifecycle.

Primary hosts – the host on which basidia and basidiospores are produced.

Alternate host – the other host in the life cycle on which spermagonia and aecia are produced

Alternative host – the host that a pathogen can infect in place of the primary or alternate hosts.

Heteroecious – organisms with a primary and alternate host.

Autoecious – organisms that have only a single (primary) host.

Macrocyclic rust – long cycle rust. Produce all 5 spore types.

Demicyclic rust – medium cycle rust. Omits uredia.

Microcyclic rust – short cycle rusts. Produces basidiospores, teliospores and spermatia.


Slide9 l.jpg

Wheat stem rust, caused by Puccinia graminis tritici


Slide10 l.jpg

Cedar apple rust, caused by Gymnosporangium juniperi-virginianum

lacks the uredia stage = no repeating stage


The smuts l.jpg
The Smuts

Unique characteristics of smuts (vs. rusts)

  • They are not obligate parasites. We can grow them in culture.

  • They show a very high degree of selectivity. They attack not only certain host but certain tissues of the host.

  • Have only tow spore types: basidiospores and teliospores.

    Example: corn smut, caused by Ustilago maydis


Review l.jpg
Review

  • Wheat stem rust – all spore types

  • Cedar apple rust – lacks ureida

  • Coffee rust – no aecial stage

  • Smuts – basidiospores + teliospores only
