The Fungi are absorptive heterotrophs. This means: 1. They use phagocytosis to capture prey and absorb the nutrients 2. They secrete enzymes outside of their “bodies” that digest food molecules into smaller molecules that can then be absorbed 3. They have a symbiosis with photosynthetic bacteria from which they absorb nutrients 4. They are photosynthetic but still need to absorb inorganic nutrients from the surrounding substrate
