Transcript

  • 1. Earth Star
    Carlee Olsen
    Contract [4]
  • 2. Classification
    The earth star fungus is classified as a Gasteromycetes or “stomach fungi”
  • 3. The earth star fungi is related to a puffball. An earth star is different than a puff ball because the earth star has three layers which allow the earth star to move
  • 4. Reproduction
    The earth star’s fruiting body is a sac filled with dry spores. Some sacs release there spores when the inside layer wears away, and some form an opening at the top of the sac. When a rain drop strikes these sacs, spores are pushed out. After spores are pushed out, the sac returns to its original shape
  • 5. Growth
    When an earth star is young, it looks like an onion. Then the outer layers split open into the rays of a star. The sac in the middle of the star holds the spores
  • 6. Response
    The earth star’s rays open when humidity is high to expose the spores, and then they close again in response to drier conditions
  • 7. Organization
    The earth star has a sac filled with dry spores, wrapped up in a layer which splits open, letting the spores expose
