Bi Sci 001 Monday February 8, 1999 Announcements: Review Session tonight at 110 Wartick Lab, from 6:30-7:30 Lecture notes: Fungi General Characteristics They are all non-photosythetic (Heteroptrophs) They are multicelled. (2 exceptions) Most are saprophytes-feeding on the remains of dead organisms or the byproducts or organisms. Some are parasites-feeding on organic matter that is still part of a living host. 2 predators-Arthrobotrys dactyloides Each individual filament is a called a hypha(ae) * Some have crosswalls to separate cells. * In some, the walls between cells disappears. * All transport nutrients to other parts of the organism. Fungi are "World Class" decomposers They so 2 things "eat and reproduce" They can decompose almost anything organic from dead leaves to jet fuel. Because their "bodies" are so filamentous, they can survive where organic material is dilute or scarce. Digestion occurs outside the fungal body. EXTRACELLULAR DIGESTION Spore formation is part of the life cycle.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
