Chapter 31: Fungi
Created by Ms. Foglia, adapted by Ms. Rhodes, with text from Campbell and Reece Biology.
This chapter describes the morphology, life cycles, evolutionary history, diversity, and economic and
ecological importance of the kingdom Fungi. Fungi play an essential ecological role, both as decomposers
and by their mycorrhizal association with plant roots. A flagellated protistan may have been the common
ancestor to fungi and animals.
1. How do fungi acquire nutrients?
2. Because of this mode of nutrition, fungi have evolved what structure to provide for both extensive
surface area and rapid growth?
3. How do the cell walls of fungi differ from the cell walls of plants?
4. How do fungi contribute to an ecosystem?
5. Give some examples of how fungi are important to humans.
Using Figure 31.4 on page
577 and the information in the text, outline the key
characteristics of each branch of the Kingdom Fungi
identified on the diagram. Include several examples
of organisms in each division.

A fungus that is both a parasite and saprobe is one that
Digests the nonliving portions of its host’s body.
Lives off the sap within its host’s body.
First lives as a parasite but then consumes the host after it dies.
Lives as a mutualistic symbiont on it’s host.
Causes athlete’s foot and vaginal infections.

Lichens are symbiotic associations that
Usually involve an ascomycete and a green alga or cyanobacterium.
Can reproduce sexually by forming soredia.
Require moist environments to grow.
