Mycology or Fungi

Parent Category: Biology
Mycology is the branch of biology in which we study the anatomy, physiology and ecology of fungal species including their biochemical, genetic character and their taxonomy.


Some examples are slime mold, downy mildew, and water molds.
Do you mean Fantasia?   If so, the dancing mushrooms were dancing to Tchaikovsky's  wonderful Nutcracker Suite.    The mushrooms look like something from the amanita family.    I don't recall them wearing anything that looks like a lace skirt.  It might have been an annulus or veil...
Fungi is asexual.
It depends on the nutrient agar used. Most are used for bacterial  growth, and some are used for fungi; such as: Sabouraud agar and  Potato dextrose agar (PDA).
Yes depending on how long they have stayed in the grocery store or not. since mushrooms are propagated by mainly by their spores, there is a possibility of extracting the spores from the fruiting body (the mushroom) but this usually requires some technical expertise. However in relating to your...
Yes, under many conditions. Once bread has been exposed to mold  spores in the air, moisture plays a key role in fungal growth. Dry  bread will almost always take longer to go moldy.
A mushroom is a type of fungus.
Yeast needs a warm temperature to grow. The best temperature for  proofing the yeast and rising the bread (or other yeast baked  foods) is about 110 degrees Fahrenheit. If it's too hot, it will  kill the yeast, and if it's too cold, it will retard or prevent the  yeast from growing.
Most fungi are made up of threadlike structures called hyphae.
about 1 to 2 weeks
Toxic mold can lead to a number of issues such as respiratory illness, headache, vomiting, skin issues, etc which can certainly be quite painful. So, yes.
During the decomposition process, organic material is breakdown by enzymatic action into simpler organic compounds and inorganic nutrients. These are either released to the environment or absorbed by the fungus.
if you are talking about mouth rot like on a bearded dragon or any type, you should get a bigger tank for them especially if you have a small tank and its a big dragon. Mouth rot is produced by the dragons nose rubbing up and down on the glass, there for you should take this seriously by either...
 One cup of chopped or sliced raw white mushrooms contains 15  calories, 0 grams of fat, 2.2 grams of protein, 2.3 grams of  carbohydrates (including 0.7 grams of fiber and 1.4 grams of  sugar).   Mushrooms are rich in B vitamins such as riboflavin, folate,  thiamine, pantothenic acid, and...

no mildew can not be removed from photographs.
it can move like a slug.
The main part of a mushroom is underground. It is called the  mycelium.
It means that it has two growths of fungus.
fungi are decomposers which means they live off of all other living things by breaking down the nutrients
Common food mushrooms do contain small amounts of protein, as well as carbohydrates and fats. A one-cup (156 g) serving of prepared canned mushrooms contains 2.9 grams of protein, which provides 7.6 calories, about 20% of the total 39 calories for the serving.
That would depend largely on the yeast used in its creation,( The timing anyway ) Eventually however...it will start to grow fur.
they reproduce by spores. Spores are found in spore bags and 1 spore bag can reproduce into millions of fungi
in small cans at the store
because when you leave bread outside of its package there are thousands of spores in the air that land on it so when you put water on it then the water kind of reproduces with the spores and then starts to grow the mold
No, mushrooms are non starchy vegetables.
The body of a fungus is commonly called the mycelium. It grows  underground and most cells within a fungus are called haploids.
There are no specific types of fungi that break down chemicals in dead organisms. Different fungi breakdown different chemicals; whus, all kinds are invovled in the breakdown of dead organisms. If you meant "what are the fungi that break down chemicals in dead organisms called", then they are called...
Since of type of fungus is the mushroom, and I had them on the pizza last night, yes, you can eat (some) fungi.
Mushrooms are a kind of fungus that people like to eat.
Mushrooms and basidia are both club shaped.

Mildew belongs to a special group of single celled organisms
It depends on the environment that the fruit are stored. If stored in wet environment both will mold at the same time. but if stored in a dry environment strawberry will mold faster.
No, its not healthy . Most fungi are dangerous for health .
These are modified leaves in a fungi that help trap sunlight and food substances
Since washing mushrooms can make them tough, I wipe them off with a paper towel.

They are different because they need to find or get there food some other way
  == Answer ==   They're a fungus, really expensive, and taste amazing. 
Mold spores are tiny multi-cellular organisms
Mycologist can distinguish safe mushrooms from poisonous ones, yet, a Mycologist isn't a well payed job most of the times, that is... If you can even get a job, it's a hard world out there...
a plant because it has chloropyll
Cause diseases and infections such as athlete's foot, ringworm, lung infections ... as well as irritating those with allergies
Yes. Mushrooms aren't organisms, however. They are simply the fruiting bodies, or 'sporocarps' (sporo - spore, carp - body) of fungi within the Phylum, Basidiomycota. Ascomycota, along with Basidiomycota form the Subkingdom, Dikarya, in the Kingdom of Fungi. A mushroom is like an apple, or a...
Yes, but only black mould and only if you breathe near it
Slime mold gets its nutrition by feeding on micronutrients in decaying organic matter.
As of May 2014, a person can purchase tea tree oil in Bangalore  from a store called Ayushya Herbs. They can be reached by calling  PH:-+91- 9886953331.
yes they do!
  Herbology is a real enough subject about plants and nature.
in dark, warm, moist places
Plants cells contain chloroplasts, allowing them to make their own food through photosynthesis. Fungi do not have chloroplasts. The cell walls of plants are made up of cellulose while the cell walls of fungi are made up of chitin. Those are only a few of the many differences between plants and fungi...
1520s, from L. fungus, learned alternative to mushroom. (Though funge was used in this sense late 14c.). The Latin word is believed to be cognate with (or derived from) Gk. sphongos, the Attic form of spongos "sponge" (see sponge).
There are two big groups of fungi, namely yeasts and filamentous fungi. Mushrooms are the fruiting bodies of fungi. Most filamentous fungi will make a type of mushroom as part of their sexual reproductive phase.Yeasts are mostly unicellular, the individual cells do not stick together, while...
Sea species do not eat fungi. Many fungi can cause disease and  infect fish and other sea creatures that come in contact with them.
Plasmodium is a sporozoan that causes Malaria.
The largest species can reach the size of a soccer ball. Most species, however, are only going to be about 2 inches.
The body of almost all fungi is a mycelium which is an interwoven mass of one cell thick, threadlike filaments called hypae.
Mold is a fungus and fungus is alive.
Some fungi reproduce sexually, and others asexually. And some even have alternating generations, where they do both!
Mushrooms are only a small phylum of the Fungi Kingdom. The mushrooms most people know as mushrooms are classified under the phylum Basidiomycota. Most of the mushroom's structure is not visible to the naked eye, the stem and cap you see growing out from the rotting wood, dirt, or substrate of any...

Yes, however you may have a hard time getting them to fruit. They seem to require some light in order to fruit. Oklahoma State University has a "Growing Shittake Mushrooms" fact sheet that details how to grow and fruit mushrooms.
Accidentally taking a sip of tea with mold in it will more than  likely not make you sick. However, if large amounts were consumed,  you could get mold sickness.
There is no scientific name for Fungi, fungi are separated into different kinds. It all depends which kind you have.

Yes!!! Molds are part of the natural environment. Outdoors, molds play a part in nature by breaking down dead organic matter such as fallen leaves and dead trees, but indoors, mold growth should be avoided. Molds reproduce by means of tiny spores; the spores are invisible to the naked eye and float...
