In Biology there are six or five kingdoms (kingdom is a taxonomic rank) and Fungus is one of them. Fungi are eukaryotic organisms that includes both micro and macro organisms. This kingdom gets separate from plants, animals and bacteria ,one such difference is fungi cells have cell walls that contain chitin, but in plant cell wall it is cellulose. Fungi lack chloroplasts. They are heterotrophic (use organic carbon for growth).
