Reproductive Bodies Sexual reproduction in fungi usually requires a spore forming structure called a fruiting body. We have special marine biologists who study in this field called Mycologists Mycology Is the study of fungi Features of Fungi Chitin is the cell wall that is composed of carbohydrates Yeasts are a fungi in a unicellular stage Filamentous Fungi grow vegatively into long filaments called hyphae. Mycelium is the tangled mass caused by the hyphae. Budding is a kind of mitosis which produces daughter cells of unequal sizes. Other types reproduce by conidospores which is also asexual often by producing spores at the end of hyphae Filamentous fungi reproduce sexually by creating a fruiting body called ascocarp. Terrestrial ascocarps consist of a spore bearing sac called an ascus Ascospores are the result of the zygote nucleus splitting into 8 different cells which then mature.
