Transcript of THE THIRD KINGDOM: The Fungi

The Fungi By: Richie Costas SUMMARY Some main fungi are mushrooms, molds, and mildew. Most fungi are multicelluar eukaryote which means it has more than one cell and it contains a nucleus. But some, like yeast, are unicellular which means it has only one cell. Diseases Fungi also cause a number of plants, humans, and animals diseases such as ringworm, athlete's foot, and several more. Because fungi are more chemically and genetically similar to animals than other organisms, this makes fungal diseases very difficult to treat. Plant diseases caused by fungi include rusts, and leaf, root, and stem rots, and may cause severe damage to crops. However, a number of fungi, like yeast, are important "model organisms" for studying problems in genetics and molecular biology. Yeast and molds belong to the fungi family. Fungi is one one of the few Kingdoms (including animals and plants). There are also mildew, mushrooms, toadstool, and breadmold. But Fungi can grow on anything from plants and animals to even humans. Types of Fungi Plants Animals Diseases Cell Structure The cell structure of fungi contains a nucleus so it's eukaryote. It also contains the main cellular structures like a cell wall, lysosomes, organelles, ribosomes, and mitochondria. It is an oval shape cell and it isn't much different from plants and animal cells.
