5 Fungi Eukaryotes (have cell walls) Hyphae- threadlike tubes that make up the bodies of multicellular fungi. (pg. 479)

6 Where are they Found? Fungi need warm moist places to survive. - moist food - damp tree bark - wet grass - wet bathroom tiles

7 Reproduction Use spores to reproduce. (most commonly) Fruiting Bodies- where spores are produced. Budding-small cell grows from parent cell, breaks off, lives on own.

8 Role in Nature Environmental Recycling (decomposers) Food –Yeast, mushrooms, blue cheese Fights Diseases (penicillin) Causes disease –Athletes foot, ring worm Assists in plant growth Bio-indicators (lichens)

9 Role in Nature Cont… Some Fungi help plants grow larger and healthier. Many plants cannot survive without fungi hyphae growing into or on the plant root. Ex: Orchids cannot grow at all without their fungal partners.

10 Lichens Lichens- fungus and algae/bacteria in mutualisitic relationship. –Fungus-food –Algae/bacteria- shelter, water, and minerals from fungus. –Useful bio-indicators because they cannot grow in polluted air.
