PROTISTS AND FUNGI. Fungi Kingdom. Eukaryotes Use spores to reproduce Heterotrophs that feed in a similar way Need warm, moist places to grow Examples: yeast, molds, mildew, and mushrooms. Kingdom Fungi. The word Fungus comes from Latin word meaning sponge.The plural of fungus is fungi.
The fungal hyphae grows into food then secrete digestive chemicals into food & absorb it
Yeast are unicellular, they reproduce by budding. A well fed cell grows from the body of the mother cell and breaks off from the mother.
Club - produce spores in structures that look like clubs (ex. Mushrooms)
*Four groups based on movement: those with flagella, cilia, pseudopods, and the ‘others’.
EXAMPLE OF HOW PSEUDOPODS MOVE
They can form pseudopods to surround & trap food. Then form a food vacuole to break down food in the cytoplasm.
