heterotrophy secrete digestive enzymes onto food and absorb the digested products through cell membrane 0 Fungi can be 0 Saprobes they absorb nutrition from organic dead substances 0 Parasites living of host organisms 1Page Biological Sciences 11 BIO SCI 152 92115 0 Mutualists living with a host organism in a relationship that benefits themselves ml the host 0 Fungi is a part of a group called opisthokonts that link the lineage of o Fungi 0 Animals 0 Flagellated Protists o smapomorphy shared trait of opisthokonts is posterior agellum if agella is present 0 Synapomorphies that characterize fungi within the opisthokonts o Absorptive heterotrophy o Chitin in cell wall 0 Four independent evolutionary origins of large multicellular organisms 0 Mai 0 Plants 0 Brown algae 0 Animals Unicellular Yeast o Yeasts unicellular freeliving lifestyle 0 Some fungi have yeast life stages unicellular and multicellular life stages 0 Occupy liquid or damp environments 0 Nutrients get absorbed directly through cell surfaces 0 Great organisms to study in lab because of their rapid growth rates and easy to make cultures from Multicellular Fungi o Mycelium body of multicellular fungus o Mycelium bulk consists of separate tubular filaments called hmhae where nutrient absorption happens I Hyphae cell walls are strengthened fortified by chitin 0 Some fungi species hyphae is compartmented by crosswalls called Epta o The divided hyphae is septate hyphae o Compartments aren t fully closed off and isolated I Pores in septa let organelles sometimes nuclei transportation between sections 2Fage Biological Sciences 11 B10 SCI 152 92115 Some species have hundreds of nuclei instead of septa in hyphae o Multinucleatedundivided hyphae are coenoc ic o Coenocytic condition created from nuclear division lacking cytokinesis Rhizoids modified hyphae attach and secure fungi to surface or dead organism with a food source Hyphal growth of mycelium can surpass 1 kilometer per day Hyphae spreads over large regions in search for nutrients Fungal Environment Interactions Surface areatovolume ratio of mycelium allows better absorption of nutrients of food 0 Disadvantage quick water loss in dry environments Fungi can be tolerant of severe hypertonic environments 0 More resilient than bacteria Lots of fungi are tolerant of extreme temperatures temp low as 212 F higher than 122 F I Example Mold can live in fridges Fungi Relationships SaprobicCarbon Cycle Saprobic fungi gather energy carbon and nitrogen directly from dead organic matter Saprobic fungi are decomposers recycle dead matter into useable material for the living 0 Example Mycelia of fungi decomposes wood of fallen trees in forests Fungi decompose substances other organisms can t o Cellulose o Lignin cell wall components in plants 0 Keratin gt hair and nails of animals Fungi run the carbon cycle recycling carbon atoms to the atmosphere as C02 which is then used by plants in photosynthesis Preferred carbon source simple sugars amp broken down products ofcomplex polysaccharides Obtain nitrogen from proteins and their breakdown products 0 Fungi use nitrate N0339 or ammonium NH4 ions as nitrogen source 3Page Biological Sciences 11 BIO SCI 152 92115 0 When food supply is low fungi rapidly reproduce spores that can lie dormant till conditions improve 0 Fungal spores are abundant travel by wind and water over very large distances Parasitic amp Predatory 0 Two classes ofparasitic fungi o Facultative parasites fungi that can grow independently or on a living host organism o Obligate parasites fungi that can onIz grow on living host organism I Have special nutritional needs 0 Common hosts are plants and insects o Fungal hyphae are well designed to live on plant hosts I Hyphae enter through the stromata wounds or epidermal cell walls I Hyphae expands mycelium by branching out in the plant 0 Haustoria are branching appendages produced by hyphae built to press through plant cell walls absorbing their nutrients I Fruiting structures are produced on the plant surface and plant insides Pathogenic fungi sicken or even kill their host organism o Fungal pathogens can kill those with weakened immune systems 0 Pathogenic fungi can cause 0 People with AIDS die of pneumonia from Pn eumocystisjirovecii o Ringworm o Athlete s foot 0 Chytrid fungus Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis Bd kills amphibians Predatory fungi trap neighboring protists and animals 0 Some hyphae of fungi can secrete sticky substances that capture prey o Fungi spreads through prey absorbing nutrients and killing organism 0 Soil fungi set threecelled ring traps to catch prey 0 Example nematode passing through ring causes it to swell confining the nematode Once trapped fungal hyphae enter and digest the nematode 4Page Biological Sciences 11 BIO SCI 152 92115 Mutualism 0 Two types of relationships 0 smbiotic partners live close having permanent contact with one another 0 Mutualism partners both benefit Lichen symbiosis between two dramatically different species fungus and photosynthetic microorganism o Allows the partnership to endure extreme environments 0 Example Antarctica

organism are usual unicellular green algae can be cyanobacterium 0 Three lichen body forms 1 Crustose crustlike appearance like colored powder dusting over substrates 2 Foliose leafyloosely attached appearance large leaves 3 Fruticose shrubby appearance branched growths that grow upward of hang down in strands o Lichens reproduce o Thallus by body fragmentation o Soredia by specialized structures Mycorrhizae relationship between plant roots and fungi 0 Two types identifies if fungal hyphae has infiltrated plant cell walls 1 Ectomycorrhizae hyphae wraps around plant rootdoes not penetrate 2 Arbuscular mycorrhizae hyphae infiltrates the root and penetrates cell walls ofrootceHs 0 Overall fungus acquires needed organic compounds sugars amino acids and plant is granted better absorption of water and minerals Endophytic 0 Some plants are protected by endophytic fungi o Endophytic fungi live in aboveground regions of plants without generating disease or deleterious symptoms Slpage Biological Sciences 11 BIO SCI 152 92115 0 Endophytic fungi grant plants greater resistance against pathogens insects and mammalian herbivores o Fungi makes alkaloids nitrogencontaining compounds

life span 0 Invades host cell by polar tube grown from microsporidian spore 0 Polar tube injects sporoplasm spore material 0 Sporoplasm replicates in host creating infective spores Chytridiomycota o Chytrids few lineages of aquatic microorganisms o Reproduction Sexual and asexual o Majority are sexual I Flagellated gametes I Flagellated spores zoospores o 0nIy fungi to have species with agella in any life cycle stage 0 Diverse forms unicellular rhizoid coenocytic hyphae o Parasitic or saprobic Relationships mutualism Zygomycota o No motile gametes o Gametes aren t released into environment 0 Cytoplasms of mating types fuse through plasmogamy before karyogamy fusion oftheir nuclei 0 Zygospore fung39 sexually reproduce when neighboring hyphae of mating types give of chemical signals to grow toward one another 0 Hyphae produce gametangia specialized reproduction cells retained as a piece ofhyphae o In gametangia nuclei replicate wo cell division creating several haploid nuclei 0 Two
