Why do plants have molds?
Plants have molds because molds depend on them for foods. That's why molds have plants.
Fungi, which is separate from plants, animals, and bacteria are a large group of eukaryotic organisms that includes microorganisms such as yeasts and molds (British English: moulds), as well as the more familiar mushrooms. These organisms are classified as their own kingdom. Molds (or moulds) are fungi that grow in the form of multicellular filaments called hyphae.
The scientific name molds is fungi that are coenocytic organisms that are made of masses of tubes or filaments called "hyphae". They do not produce large fruiting bodies like the mushroom. There are thousands of different types of fungi. An introduction to molds Molds are heterotrophs that do not produce their own food like plants (phototrophs). Molds secrete digestive enzymes that dissolve organic and inorganic food material and then absorb the digested material.
Molds are considered to be microbes and do not form a specific taxonomic or phylogenetic grouping, but can be found in the divisions Zygomycota and Ascomycota. There are Fungi known as molds. Slime molds and water molds are not Fungi. There are Fungi known as molds. Slime molds and water molds are not Fungi.
No. A Slime Mould or Myxomycete is a fungi like organism that has the characteristics of both plants and animals. They are found in the tropics and the temperate zones. ***** Apparently yes. Look for a New York Times article entitled "Can Answers to Evolution Be Found in Slime?" In the article it says: "The Global Eumycetozoan Project, based at the University of Arkansas, has doubled the known species of slime molds. Biologists have found…
