02:16 1. eukaryotic 2. multicellular except yeast 3. heterotrophs 4. absorptive nutrition and extra cellular digestion 5. cell walls composed of chitin not cellulose 6. mycelium compose of hyphae; also the body of a fungus 7. haplontic life cycle sexual and asexual stages (both produce spores) dikaryotic stage 8. rapid growth 9. wide variety of symbiotic relationships 10. store glucose as glycogen Structure: The body of a fungus is called a mycelium made up of tubular filaments of cells called  hyphae Study the types of hyphae: 31.3 and 31.4 Harstoria- (plural) parasitic hyphae Rapid growth occurs for two reasons: the mycelium produces an extensive surface area for absorption. Rapid movement of the nutrients between cells. Types of fungi Saprophytic- absorb nutrients from nonliving organic material
