Fungi
  • Originally classified as part of the plant kingdom, but none of them photosynthesize.
  • Fungi structure is adapted for two main purposes:
    • Reproduction
    • Absorption of Nutrients
slide3

The reproductive parts of a fungi are often the only visible parts

    • Wide variety of shapes and colours
    • Includes:
      • Chytrids (water mould)
      • Common moulds (bread mould)
      • Yeast, morels & truffles
      • Mushrooms
      • Club-shaped (parasitic fungi)

The parts designed for nutrient absorption are often underground (called mycelium)

    • A mesh of microscopic filaments that branch out just below the surface
    • Each filament in the mesh is called a hypha
      • The cell walls of hyphae are often reinforced with chitin
      • Some hyphae contain cross-walls
slide5

Some fungi have hyphae

with cross-walls. Most

hyphae have cell walls that

are reinforced with chitin.

It forms structures of

considerable strength.

(a) Hyphae with cross-walls

(b) Hyphae without crosswalls

(c) Mycelium showing many

interlocking hyphae

Life Cycle of Fungi
  • Wide variety of reproductive cycles, but all fungi form spores inside a sporangium
