how are fungi made
How are fungi made?
  • Fungi are made up of filaments called hyphae that are stacked together from end to end.
where do fungi live
Where do fungi live?
  • Some types of fungi lives off of other organisms and are parasites, but other fungi species feed off of dead and decaying matter. A third kind of fungi lives with other organisms and neither the fungi or the organism is hurt. This kind of relationship is called positive symbiosis. But other fungi just live on land and other types of water environment.
how is fungi identified
How is fungi identified?

Trichoderma is a good fungi, it attacks bad fungus that destroys crops.



how is fungi reproduced
How is fungi reproduced:
  • When reproductive hyphae cells are made by the fungus, a mushroom shape forms at the top. The scientific name for the mushroom shape is the sporocarp. It has one purpose, that is to release reproductive spores. The sporocarp is not part of the live fungi. Fungi can be reproduced alone or with a partner.
what does fungi do
What does fungi do?
  • Fungi are important decomposers of dead animal and plant matter. They break down dead organic matter into simple compounds that can be absorbed by the plants around it.
some different types of fungi
Some different types of fungi:
  • saprophytic, those that feed on dead organisms;
  • parasitic, which feed off living hosts;
how they transported
How they transported:

  • Trichoderma: imperfect fungi of the family
  • Chlorophyll: the green coloring matter of leaves and plants
  • Organisms: a form of life considered a animal, plant, fungus.
  • multi-cellular: composed of several or many cells.
  • Filaments: a long slender cell or series of attached cells
  • Parasites: an organism that lives on or in an organism of another species (host)
  • Sporocarp: a multicellular structure in which spores form; a fruiting body.
  • Spores: a walled, single- to many-celled, reproductive body of an organism
  • Decomposers: an organism, usually a bacterium or fungus, that breaks down the cells of dead plants and animals into simpler substances.
  • Organic: of or pertaining to an organ or the organs  of an animal, plant, or fungus.
  • Compounds: having or involving two or more actions or functions: The mouth is a compound organ.
