In this article, we will discuss Characteristics of Fungi. So, let’s get started.

Characteristics
• Eukaryotes
• Prefer dark, warm, moist areas
• Unicellular (yeast) or Multicellular (molds, mushrooms)
• Have cell wall in L.C. – *NOT part of K. Plantae because they lack chlorophyll
• All heterotrophic – digestion is extra cellular (external), and then the food is absorbed through
the cell wall/ cell membrane.
a) saprobes = absorb food from dead/ decaying organisms ex) mushrooms
b) parasites = obtain food from living host ex)ringworm, Athlete’s foot.
