Deuteromycota

  1. 1. Deuteromycota- Imperfect Fungi<br />Cj Balicanta` Jeremy Magdaong` Geo Robeniol<br />`Celina Alejandro`Gianne Pagulayan` Mara Tan<br />
  2. 2. Why are they called ‘imperfect’?<br />
  3. 3. <ul><li>Mycologists never observed the sexual reproduction of fungi in the imperfect fungi group.</li></ul>It is said that these fungi may have lost their sexual phase through the course of evolution <br />Because...<br />Basically because of the fact that the sexual reproduction of these fungi are not observe so scientists decided to classify it to other group referred as the Imperfect Fungi<br />
  4. 4.  Fungi which cannot be classified as zygomycetes (zygote fungi), ascomycetes (sac fungi) nor basidiomycetes (club fungi)<br />Deuteromycota (Imperfect Fungi)<br />Examples of Basidiomycetes<br />Example of Ascomycetes<br />Example of Zygomycetes<br />
  5. 5. What Are These Fungi?<br />They are heterogenous group of unrelated species<br />They Reproduce asexually by producing conidia on hyphae called conidiophores<br /> Conidia -asexual, non-motile <br /> spores of a fungus<br />
  6. 6.
  7. 7. If they are imperfect, then why are they considered as Fungi?<br />
  8. 8. Because....<br /><ul><li> Their multicellular tissues are similar </li></ul> to hyphae of sac and club fungi<br /><ul><li>They have erect hyphae with asexual </li></ul> spores, called conidia, which <br /> are similar to those of the sac fungi <br /> and club fungi<br />Basically because of their common characteristics to the other types of fungi<br />
  9. 9. Examples of Imperfect Fungi<br /><ul><li>Aspergillus niger
  10. 10. causes black mold; common food contaminant
  11. 11. Trichophyton sp.
  12. 12. causes athlete’s foot
