Member of the kingdom Fungi include fairly familiar organisms such asmushrooms, toadstools and bracket fungi.
There are also less obvious but veryimportant members such as mold, which grow on bread, ripe fruits and otherfood.
Fungi are found in damp or wet places
They have eukaryotic cells with a rigid protective wall made of chiti
They are heterotrophs, some are saprophytic where others are parasitic
They store food as glycogen
They reproduce using spore
They are non-mobile
They have chitin in their cell wall
They have septate
are also called sae fungi.
are bakers’yeast, cup fungi and ringworm fungi.
Their cell wall is not made by chitin but cetin polysaccharide component of phosphoric acid
Have granulated cytoplasm
Store food in form of glycogen
Reproduce asexually by budding and sexually by means of ascospores.
Reproduce sexually by means of ascospores
are small, softplantscalledbryophytes, that are typically 1–10 cm
(0.4–4 in) tall, though some species are much larger.
close together in clumps or mats in damp or shady locations.
not haveflowersorseeds, and their simple leaves cover the thin wiry
as beak-like capsules borne aloft on thin stalks.
the advantage side, it can help to hold thebonsai soilin place and
prevent it from washing out of the container.
water retention capability of the soil by slowingevaporation.
the disadvantage side, a thick carpet of moss can reduce the diffusion
of gases into the soil and to theroots, which can result inroot
