fungi. form our food. Having no chlorophyll, fungi cannot use the energyof the sun and must therefore adopt another method of life.
Fungi are those plants which are colourless; they have no green chlorophyll within them, and it is this green substance which enables the higher plants to build up, under the influence of sunlight, the starches and sugars which ultimately form our food. Having no chlorophyll, fungi cannot use the energy of the sun and must therefore adopt another method of life. They either live as parasites on other living plants or animals, or they live on decaying matter. In either case they derive their energy by breaking up highly complex substances and, when these are broken up in the living plant, the living plant suffers. Many Fungi, such as the bacteria, are microscopic; others form visible growths, from moulds and mildews to the familiar mushroom and toadstools they in crease in size and conspicuousness. Fungi differ from flowering plants in theirchemical influence upon the air. They absorb oxygen and exhale carbonic acid, performing the same office in this respect as animals, which they most resemble in chemical composition. The odours they emit in decay are more like putrescent animal than vegetable matter. Some species, e.g., the Stinkhorns, emit a most intolerably offensive stench; others, on the contrary, are very agreeable to the smell and some 'toadstools' acquire in drying a fine aroma. They are quite as variable to the taste. Numerically, Fungi rank next to flowering plants and in many portions of the globe far exceed them. In Great Britain, indeed, we have just over 5,000 species of Fungi, which number exceeds that of our flowering plants, ferns, mosses, lichens and algae all added together.

fungi of Australia. GLOSSARY. The glossary is also intended to guide themany future contributors to the fungi in the use of terminology.
Fungi of Australia GLOSSARY Compiled by C.A.Grgurinovic This general glossary contains terms likely to be used frequently in the volumes of the Fungi of Australia and the majority of terms used in the introductory volumes. Specialised terms that are crucial to the understanding of individual family accounts, but not of wide application, will be explained and illustrated, where appropriate, in the relevant volumes. It is the policy of the Editorial Committee to keep the use of technical terms within reasonable bounds so as to make it as easy as possible for the reader to consult the Fungi without constant reference to the glossary. Simple explanations have been preferred to long and involved ones; the meanings given are believed to be accurate but are certainly not claimed to be complete. Words explained adequately, for mycological purposes, in The Macquarie Dictionary or in any general biology text have usually not been included unless much more widely used in English in a different sense. The glossary is also intended to guide the many future contributors to the Fungi in the use of terminology. For that reason alternative spellings that are commonly used in the taxonomic literature are often not given.

Index to this page
Approximately 100,000 species of fungi have been identified.
Characteristics of Fungi
  • Most fungi grow as tubular filaments called hyphae . An interwoven mass of hyphae is called a mycelium
  • The walls of hyphae are often strengthened with chitin , a polymer of N -acetylglucosamine The linkage between the sugars is like that of cellulose and peptidoglycan and produces the same sort of structural rigidity.
  • Fungi are heterotrophic
    • Some live as saprophytes , getting their nourishment from the surroundings (often having first digested it by secreting enzymes ). They perform a crucial role in nature by decomposing dead organisms are releasing their nutrients for reuse by the living.
    • Some live in a mutually beneficial symbiotic relationship with another organism, often a plant. The association of fungus and root is called a mycorrhiza
      • The plant benefits by more efficient mineral uptake.
      • The fungus benefits by the sugars translocated to the root by the plant.
      Mycorrhizal fungi may also form conduits for nutrients between plant species. The colorless, and hence

91. Fungi In Finland And In Sweden
Detailed photographs of hundreds of species in Finland and in Sweden, with notes on edibility. In Finnish, Swedish, and English.
Fungi in Finland and
in Sweden
Welcome to The Kingdom of Fungi.
On these pages I want to show mushrooms from Finland and Sweden. Some photos of mushrooms are from other countries, too. They are here, because I want to show, that sometimes there are not so much differences in countries that are on the other sides of the world. When I was in beginning with these pages, I didn't have any own photos of mushrooms. That's why I want to give credits to all photographers, who have given permission to use their photos on my pages. Take a little time and look at my " Photographers' Page I must leave this Fungi Site as a sambling of photographs of mushrooms. As I know now, I don't have time enough to write descriptions in English, too. My photos are not as fine than the others', but you can see, which species are there in photos. I have a very old camera without any specialities. Every mushroom has its own page with a picture and maybe an other page with more pictures. First you have to choose the order in which you want to list mushrooms.

Phungophobe's Phear "Higher Fungi"
If you cannot "stomach" mushrooms, then you are a fungophobe and this lecture is likely to be revolting to have to face your fear here. The higher fungi simply refers to those organisms commonly placed by taxonomists into Kingdom Fungi.
Zygomycota = Zygomycetes
This division is in Kingdom Fungi and is probably the most primitive of the group. Go over the life cycle of Rhizopus Tell the interesting phototropism and spore dispersal mechanism in Pilobolus
Ascomycota = Ascomycetes (Sac Fungi)
Show examples starting with yeasts and working up to morels. Go through life cycle.
  • ascospores germinate into haploid mycelium (gametophyte)
  • one mating type produces ascogonium (female?)
  • other mating type produces antheridium (male?)
  • trichogyne of ascogonium touches antheridium and cytoplasms join (plasmogamy)
  • merged cells become ascogenous hyphae
    (dikaryotic, heterokaryotic, septate mycelium)
    Is this a sporophyte or what?
  • haploid mycelium surrounding ascogenous hyphae form ascocarp
  • tips of ascogenous hyphae form hymenium layer in/on ascocarp
  • tip cell (the ascus) undergoes karyogamy (union of nuclei to complete syngamy)
    this is the ONLY diploid cell (zygote? or just sporocyte?)

The Amazing Kingdom Of Fungi
Major Subtopics To Be Discussed:
D uring my career as a biology professor at Palomar College I have probably had more questions about fungi than any other plant group. Often it is someone calling on the telephone about a strange blob that has suddenly appeared in their backyardand they are wondering if it is edible, poisonous, or does it pose any threat to their family or house. Because of the difficulty in identifying strange fungi by a lay person, I usually do not recommend trying them in your favorite culinary recipe. [WPA, 12 Jan. 1996] Yellow parasol mushrooms ( Lepiota lutea
O f all the five major kingdoms of living organisms on earth, the fungi certainly contain some of the most bizarre and fascinating species. Mycology is the study of fungi, and much of the current research in this field is at the molecular level. For example, molecular mycologists are trying to piece together the very complex interrelationships between fungal taxa using comparative DNA sequencing. You have probably heard about some of these modern techniques (PCR and RFLP) if you followed the infamous O.J. Simpson Trial. There are about 100,000 known species of mushrooms, rusts, molds, mildews, stinkhorns, puffballs, truffles and other organisms assigned to the Kingdom Fungi, and hundreds of new species are described each year. They come in an astonishing variety of shapes, colors and sizes, from brilliant red cups and orange jellylike masses to strange fungi resembling golfballs, bird nests with eggs, starfish, parasols and even male genitalia (see next paragraph).

Mushrooms and Toadstools Back in 1996-1997 I used to work for a software company called Harlequin, in a nice big house in Barrington situated in some very nice grounds. I noticed in autumn that there were a lot of interesting looking mushrooms around, and this is how my interest in fungi began. Since then I've positively identified about 35 species of mushroom with the help of five books on identifying mushrooms that I cross-check against, and I've eaten six different types that I've collected myself, some on many occasions. But this year I thought it might be amusing to keep a mycological diary, mainly to remind me next year where and when to find the tasty ones. A note of caution - I spend a lot of time making sure I've got the right mushroom, and that it isn't one of the poisonous ones. Although there are only a few truly fatal mushrooms in the United Kingdom, there are plenty that can make you feel very ill for a long time. So don't take this as a guide - if you get interested, go out, buy a book, or join a club. The books I use are:
  • Mushrooms and other fungi of Great Britain and Europe by Roger Phillips. This book is incredibly comprehensive, and contains superb pictures of all known fungi in Britain. Usually the pictures include the young fruit bodies right across to aging specimins, so you should be able to identify the fungus no matter how old it is. The only problem is that because the book contains about 900 entries sorted by species, it can be difficult to find the fungus you have found. That is where the next book comes in handy:
