INTRODUCTION TO THE Structure and Function of Fungi

Theme - What do fungi look like and how do we differentiate them?

The fundamental issue to understand is that a diversity of form is found among the fungi. In addition, various forms may be found in any one fungus. Some forms change when the environment changes and as the fungus matures. This section of the course is broken into the following topics:

Hyphal Structure

Wall Compostion and Construction


Nuclear States

Spores, sexual and asexual

Dimorphic Structures



Sclerotia and Stromata
