  2. 2. What Defines Fungi? <ul><li>Fungi are: </li></ul><ul><li>Eukaryotic </li></ul><ul><li>Heterotrophs </li></ul><ul><li>Fungi have: </li></ul><ul><li>Cell walls made of chitin </li></ul><ul><li>An external digestive system </li></ul><ul><li>If it doesn’t have all these, it isn’t a Fungus. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Structure of Multicellular Fungi <ul><li>Mycelium – consists of strands of hyphae grown into the fungi’s food source or source of nutrition. </li></ul><ul><li>Fruiting Body – some fungi do not have a fruiting body but those that do grow them for the purpose of reproduction and spreading of spores. In club fungi, the fruiting body is the only visible portion of a fungus. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Structure of Club Fungi
  5. 5. Closer Look at Hypha
  6. 6. Reproduction of Fungi <ul><li>In the most basic terms: </li></ul><ul><li>Spores are released from the fruiting body </li></ul><ul><li>They find their way to a source of food and nutrients </li></ul><ul><li>The spores grow into a mycelium structure from the food source </li></ul><ul><li>Eventually the mycelium will mature into a new fruiting body </li></ul><ul><li>Note that most but not all fungi , especially single celled fungi, reproduce this way . </li></ul>
  7. 8. Single Celled Fungi <ul><li>Single Celled Fungi reproduce by meiosis, just like all other cells </li></ul><ul><li>An example of a single celled fungus is the yeast. </li></ul>
