In this article we will discuss the nutritional requirements, essential elements, sources of macro elements, modes and mechanism of nutrition in fungi. The fungi utilise both organic compounds and inorganic materials as the source of their nutrient supply. In other words, organic and inorganic compounds constitute their food.
Updated August 9, My web page went online November 25,although I had several hundred images online on a "gopher" server starting July The first month I had hits, mostly from my reloading the page to see if it was still online.
By contrast, last month there were more than 17, hits on this page.
These pages have been viewed in countries apparently being blocked in North Korea. Thanks to all the non-professional and professional mycologists, students, teachers and the myco-curious who have visited and revisited my pages.
You can view the pdf of the file here. Thanks to La Crosse Magazine for the nice feature! I am very grateful to Mike Clayton of the UW-Madison Botany Department for getting me started and for hosting my pages all these years.
Visit his Botany Instructional Technology web page at botit. Please read some of the or so webpages made by my students in Organismal Biology, a class I have now taught three times. Each student could choose any organism and make a web page about it.
Of course many of them chose the "charismatic megafauna," but some chose more interesting organisms.
In future years students will not be allowed to repeat previous organisms, so we got the pandas and the cheetahs and the elephants out of the way.
Some of the pages are very creative, and I have been very impressed with the overall quality.Plant-fungi interactions. Source: Kew State of the World’s Fungi Report Despite fungi being Not Plants, plant scientists still have a keen interest in them.
The report highlights the positive relationships between fungi and plants, with a large proportion of plants .
Botany is the scientific study of plants. "Plants," to most people, means a wide range of living organisms from the smallest bacteria to the largest living things - the giant sequoia trees. By this definition plants include: algae, fungi, lichens, mosses, ferns, conifers and flowering plants.
Fungi reproduce vegetatively, asexually and sexually. Vegetatively Reproduction: – The most common method of vegetative reproduction is fragmentation and the fungi reproduce vegetatively by other means, such as fission, budding, sclerotia, rhizomorphs etc.

In this article we will discuss the nutritional requirements, essential elements, sources of macro elements, modes and mechanism of nutrition in fungi. Nutritional Requirements: The fungi utilise both organic compounds and inorganic materials as the source of their nutrient supply.
In other words, organic and inorganic compounds constitute their food. Fungi, as well as bacteria and algae were classified in the plant kingdom under this system and that is the reason that these organisms are traditionally studied in botany.
In the case of fungi, MYCOLOGY is that part of botany that studies fungi.
