The kingdom of fungi including some of the most important living bodies or organisms, have good terms of their ecological and economic role. In addition, draining dead organic material, through ecosystem nutrient cycling.
Although the appearance of many fungi can be plants, animals, which are probably related. Mushrooms are not suitable for the application of photosynthesis, so to keep your food from other sources. He absorbs nutrients directly for many fungi in the soil. Many others feed on dead and decaying bodies and have an important role in the recycling of nutrients in natural systems. Other compounds are still present on living organisms. Athlete's foot is a common fungus, a dwelling worthy food!
If you believe that fungi, supermarket or hunting in the Woods think probably buy in fungi. These "mushrooms", however, is actually only specific facilities, "fruiting", produced by fungus for reproduction. Life for the rest of the cast (and above) under the ground.
Fungi that leads to a number of diseases in animals and plants: in things human, ringworm, athlete's foot and other more serious diseases caused by fungi. Since genetically and chemically similar to fungi, animals and other organisms, very difficult to treat fungal diseases. Diseases caused by fungi are dirt and rust, leaf, root, rock and can cause serious damage to crops. But there are a number of fungi, including yeasts, model organisms important "for the treatment of the problems in genetics and molecular biology."
Mushrooms come in different shapes and sizes, and many have great economic importance. Small, easy-of yeasts are important for cooking bread and fermentation of wine, beer and vinegar. Fungi, especially the antibiotic, penicillin, produce many medicines. To pan on the counter for a long time, will be able to see a relative of the Penicillium mould for you.
The fungi are also different in terms of their reproduction process. Fungi are capable of what they call the asexual reproduction process. In this process, they can still reproduce even if they don't have any partner. Thus, a single parent can give off some offspring on itself. Some may undergo, spore formation. Others may also undergo budding. And others may undergo the process of cell split.
Fungi, or the mushrooms are edibles. They can be eaten. But beware, because they can be also harmful. Some mushrooms are not edible; instead they are poisonous. These mushrooms shouldn't be eaten as food, therefore. We should be careful all the time.
