Group 1 Fungi

  • Fungi are heterotrophic organisms. The only difference between other heterotrophic animals and fungi is that fungi digest and then ingest the food.
  • Fungi releases enzymes on the body of the other living things and thrive on them.
  • There is no embryonic stage for fungi.
  • A fungus develops from spores, and are both sexual and asexual.
  • Though most of the fungi are single cellular, most of the fungi species grow as multi-cellular filaments called hyphae. The hyphae form a mycelium.
  • Other fungi are parasites and obtain their nutrients from living host.
  • Eukaryotic
  • non - vascular organisms
  • reproduce by spores
Examples are yeast button mushroom and molds
