A) means that sexual reproduction can occur in specialized structures.
B) results in multiple diploid nuclei per cell.
C) allows fungi to reproduce asexually most of the time.
D) results in heterokaryotic or dikaryotic cells.
E) is strong support for the claim that fungi are not truly eukaryotic.
B. gastrovascular cavity
B. Composition of cell wall
D. Sexual structures
E. Multicellular vs. unicellular
a.) Fungi produce O2 and make it available to nearby plants for use in the carbon cycle.
b.) Fungi release water from the soil and break it up into its constituent elements, thus freeing up hydrogen atoms for the carbon cycle.
c.) Fungi accelerate the carbon cycle by breaking down wood and thus freeing up carbon atoms.
d.) Fungi fix carbon and produce O2 just like plants do during photosynthesis.
A) All members are photosynthetic.
B) Members absorb dissolved organic matter.
C) Members absorb dissolved inorganic matter.
D) All members are microscopic.
E) All members are macroscopic.
a. The stolon transports water and nutrients, while the mycelium releases spores.
b. The stolon contains sporangia, while the mycelium stores water and nutrients.
c. The stolons of two fungi connect to form gametangia, while the mycelium is made up of hyphae.
d. The stolon releases enzymes to break down food, while the mycelium provides structure and support.
