What is a septate hyphae?

It is a hypha that is separated by cell walls

What is the function of a Stolon?

To sexually reproduce

What is the function of a rhizoid hyphae?

To support the fungus and digest the food

What is the function of sporophores?

To produce spores

What is the function of a haustorium?

To absorb nutrience from the cytoplam of cells

What are the five features common to most fungi?

Extracellular Digestion, Mycelium, hyphae, rhizoid hyphae, cell walls of chitin

All fungi are assumed to have what?

Some sexal mode of spore formation

Sexual reproduction in fungi usually involves forming what?

Fruiting bodies

Members of phylum Basidiomycota form sexual spores on clublike what?


One mode of sexual reproduction involves lenthening what?

The Stolon

Members of phylum Ascomycota form sexual spores in what?

Saclike asci

Members of phylum Zygomycota form what sexual spores?


Members of phylum Chytridiomycota form spores with what?


Members of phylum Deuteromycota have no what?

They have no known sexual mode of reproduction

Members of Myxomycta are placed in what kingdom by some biologists, for what reason?

They are placed in kingdom Protista because they resemble protozoa for much of their lives.

Mushrooms make up most of the organisms in what phylum?


In the mushroom life cycle, Mycelia grow from what?


What happens for sexual reproduction of mycelia?

Two mycelia fuse together

What is the button stage of the mushroom?

When many hyphae enclose themselves in a membrane

What emerges from the membrane after the button stage?

The stipe, cap and gills

What are in the gills?

The basidia

What do the basidia do?

Form spores which form new mycelia

The mycelium of a mushroom grows outward in dense patches. What does this form and why?

It forms Fairy Rings because when new myceliums form on the outside, the myceliums in the inside run out of food and die. Thus they form a ring

How do Puffball fungi form their spores?

Inside the membrane

Shelf Fungi are part of what phylum and what do they grow?

Basidiomycota and they grow shelflike structures on both dead and living wood

What are Rusts and Smuts examples of?

Parasitic fungi in phylum Basidiomycota

What two hosts does a parasitic fungus spend its life on?

A Main Host and An Alternate Host

What members of phylum Ascomycota are single celled and reproduce by budding?


What phylum do morels fungi cup fungi belong?


What are two pathogenic fungi and what maladies do they cause?

Claviceps purpurea (ergot of rye) is deadly to humans and Chyphonectria Parasitica causes chestnut blight

When a slime mold is a plasmodium, what Kingdom does it resemble?

Kingdom Protista

To remove slime molds what should you do?

Dry the area

What are two forms of mutualism that fungi participate in?

lichens and mycorrhizae

What is a soredium?

A specilized spore produced by most lichens and it contains spores from both the fungus and the algae.

What belongs in phylum Zygomycota?

Bread mold

Phylum Zygomycota form asexual spores in what?


What produced the first antibiotic ever discovered?

Fungi in Genus Penicillium which are in phylum Deuteromycota

A lichen is what?

A mutualistic relationship between a fungus and an alga

What do the alga do in lichen?

Produces food for itself and the fungus by means of photosynthesis

What does the fungus do in a lichen?

It gives support and protection to the algae

How do most lichens reproduce?

by releasing a dust-like substance called a soredium

What is a Mycorrhiza?

A mutualistic relationship between a fungus and a plant root.

What does the fungus of a mycorrhiza do?

Absorbs nutrients from the roots and gives the plant minerals in return

How is budding different thatn asexual reproduction in bacteria?

The difference is that the offspring stays attatched to the parent cell until it is fully grown
