Version 2.77


A fungus (plural fungi) is a eukaryotic organism that digests its food externally and absorbs the nutrient molecules into its cells. Along with bacteria, fungi are the primary decomposers of dead organic matter in most terrestrial ecosystems. Fungi have important symbiotic relationships with many other organisms. Over 90% of all plants engage in some kind of mycorrhizal relationship with fungi and are dependent upon this relationship for survival. Fungi are also used extensively by humans: yeasts are responsible for fermentation of beer and bread, and mushroom farming and gathering is a large industry in many countries. The branch of biology involving the study of fungi is known as mycology. Copyright Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License. See for details.
