The Origin of Fungi Phylogenetic systematics suggests: Fungi descended from an aquatic organism Fungi evolved from a flagellated ancestor (although fungi today have no flagella) The ancestor was unicellular

Choanoflagellida (clade) Contain flagella and a body type similar to a  characteristic type of sponge cell.  Some systematists place these organisms in the animal  and fungi kingdom.

Characteristics of Fungi Fungi, studied in the field of  mycology, are heterotrophs many are saprophytes that digest dead organic matter and wastes Some are parasites that obtain nutrients from the tissues of other organisms Multicellular  Molds and mushrooms Unicellular Yeasts

Saprotrophs : secrete digestive enzymes called, exoenzymes, into the surrounding environment to decompose complex molecules needed for nutrition.

Structural Components of Fungi Thallus:  The body of a fungus consists of a mycelium Mycelium:   a loosely organized mass of threadlike  structures called hyphae release enzymes that digest substratum Increased surface area for absorption Cell walls contain chitin a polysaccharide also found in the  exoskeletons of arthropods

Hypha Hypha are composed of tubular cell walls surrounding the plasma membrane and the cytoplasm of the cells. Hypha, in most Fungi, is divided by cross-walls called, Septa . Septa have pores which allow for ribosomes, mitochondria, and nuclei to flow from cell to cell Coenocytic Hypha are those hyphae lacking septa. Repeated division of nuclei without cytoplasmic division Specialized Hypha Haustoria- penetrate the tissue of their host
