Best Answer

No - most fungi have both a diploid and haploid stage in their lifecycle. Some fungi undergo asexual reproduction (which only involves one parent organism) and others undergo sexual reproduction.

How many chromosomes does fungi have?

There are over 200,000 species of fungus, including moulds, mushrooms, yeasts and lichens. They have different chromosome numbers, the number may even vary with the same species as well as the type of reproduction they are under going (vegetative or sexual)

Does fungi contain unicellular?

No, fungi is not unicellular. Fungi is multicellular

Do protoctists have chromosomes?

Yes. Some are very closely related to archaebacteria which have a large circular chromosome like eubacteria. Others are very closely related to plants (algae), animals (protozoans), and fungi (slime molds) and would have numerous chromosomes, sometimes homologous pairs if diploid, sometimes haploid/monoploid.

What are the chromosomes of fungi made of?

DNA and Proteins. Chromosomes in organisms are composed of DNA and protein

Which kingdom has members with one circular chromosomes?


Do fungi spend most of its life cycle as a dipliod of a hapliod organism?

Fungi are haploid meaning that there is only one copy of each chromosome. Basically, they have no extra copy of each gene. Humans are diploids because we have two copies of chromosomes in case of a defect. This might be the general case, but I know that yeast, a unicellular fungi, can exist as a diploid. This happens when two haploid cells "mate" and basically fuse together.

Is the definitive nucleus in plants haploid in number?

No. Haploid is a term used to describe the genetic makeup of an animal with only one set of sister chromosomes. Humans are diploid organisms, which means they have 46 chromosomes, two sets of 23 (one from mother, on from father). Plants (and fungi) however, have a different developmental pathway which in certain organisms can result in only one set of chromosomes, or haploid. The huge diversity of plants include haploid, diploid, and polyploid (many copies of each chromosome) species.

Does fungi contain green pigment chlorophyl?

No, Fungi does not contain the green pigment chlorophyll. The correct answer is Algae.

Where in the human body are haploid cells found?

Haploid cells are also known as reproductive cells. These cells only contain one-half of the required chromosomes for a new baby to be created (the other set of chromosomes are in diploid cells). Haploid can be found in testicles and ovaries in humans, but are also found in algae's and bacteria's.

Does fungi cell walls contain chitlin?

Yes. Fungi cell walls are made of chitin.

What is the ploidy of ascocarp?

Ascocarp contain two haploid nuclei from different parents after undergoing plamogamy. This is a situation unique to fungi, and is defined to be dikaryotic.
