Macroscopic fungi such as morels, mushrooms, puffballs, and the cultivated agarics available in grocery stores represent only a small fraction of the diversity in the kingdom Fungi. The molds, for example, are a large group of microscopic fungi that include many of the economically important plant parasites, allergenic species, and Biology of thefungi book pathogens of humans and other animals.

Cited by: The book describes the astonishing diversity of the fungi, their complex life cycles, and intriguing mechanisms of spore release.

The distinctive cell biology of the fungi is linked to their development as well as their metabolism and physiology.4/5(13). The basic idea of the book remains, namely to present fungi as living organisms profoundly affecting the lives of other kinds of living organisms, especially Man.

ADVERTISEMENTS: The below mentioned article provides biology notes on fungi. Fungi is the plural of the word fungus which is derived from the latin word fungour which means to flourish.

The word was primarily used with reference to mushrooms which develop overnight. In usage, the meaning of the word has been expanded to include thallus [ ].

The Kingdom Fungi is an ensemble of diverse species. suggests that all fungal species are not derived from a single common ancestor, consequently the Fungi are polyphyletic (multiple genealogies or lineages).
