What is Kingdom Fungi in Biology
Kingdom Fungi in Biology
Fungi are a group of unicellular to multicellular, thalloid, heterotrophic, eukaryotic living organisms having a body called MYCELLIUM, made up of HYPHAE which are non- chlorophyllous & have cell wall (made up of chitin).
Reproduction is usually ASEXUAL by means of spores”.
Fungi Are Neither Completely Plants Nor Animals
Previously fungi were regarded as plants as they resemble the plants in many characteristics. But in addition fungi have many qualities just like the animals. 80 they are regarded in the midway between plants and animals.
Plant Like Characteristics Of Fungi
Fungi resemble the plants in:
1- Having Cell Wall
2- Lacking Centrioles
3- Being non-motile
Animal Like Characteristics Of Fungi
But Fungi also resemble with animals as they are
2- Lack cellulose in their cell wall
3- Presence of chitin
It means that Fungi are neither completely plants nor animals.
Detail studies also confirm that Fungi are different from all other organisms.
They have a characteristic mitosis called Nuclear-mitosis during which nuclear membrane does not break & spindle is formed with in the nucleus.
Some Representatives of Kingdom Fungi
Examples are as follows:-
Note: The need for constant access to information sources and sufficient technical equipment: a sufficiently powerful computer, Internet access, preferably a printer; • absence or lack of practical training; • Insufficient development of some training programs and courses due to insufficient number of qualified specialists with experience in creating appropriate teaching aids; • a written basis for training, a complete lack of oral education. The inability to demonstrate knowledge in verbal form for some applicants for education can be a decisive factor in the interruption of training. Thus, distance education is a very convenient, promising and accessible form of high school education. To obtain the first higher education, this form may be preferable to traditional forms in a number of cases – in the presence of spatial, temporal or financial constraints.
