Describe how protists can be organized into three groups based on their shared traits.
List an example for each group of protists.

Characteristics of Fungi
Fungi are eukaryotic heterotrophs that have rigid cell walls and no chlorophyll.
Threadlike Fungi reproduce sexually when a hypha from one individual joins with a hypha from another individual. The hyphae grow into specialized sporangia that can survive times of cold or little water. When conditions improve, they will grow into a new fungi.
