protists, plant, and fungi

mildew black and found on windowsills and such
Are fungi classified as plants, animals or neither? Explain your answer. Neither. They are not plants because they don’t have chloroplast. Not animals because they don’t have a cell wall
What characteristics do fungi share with plants? Cell walls, multicellular
What characteristics do fungi share with animals? Multicellular, heterotrophic, and eukaryotic
What are the 3 main types of fungi? Molds, club fungi, and sac fungi
How are fungus cells different from bacteria cells? Some are single celled and some aren’t.
What are hyphae? Hyphae are thread like structures that are usually found in soil
How do most fungi reproduce? They reproduce by spoars.
Why do you think fungi produce so many spores, while many animals only produce a few babies? Because they don’t care for them, they just release them over a large area and hope there’s some land where they can grow
What are some examples of molds? Penicillium, slime mold
What is the mold Penicillium notatum known for? It is known by making antibiotics.
What are some familiar examples of sac fungi? Morels, truffles, and powdery mildew
What are some uses of sac fungi? food, decomposers
Why are club fungi given that name? heir reproductive structure looks like a club.
fungi part of the 5 kingdoms
zooplankton •Zooplankton are the heterotrophic (sometimes detritivorous) type of plankton. Plankton are organisms drifting in the water column of oceans, and seas
Pseudo pod Pseudopods or pseudopodia are temporary projections of eukaryotic cells. Cells having this faculty are generally referred to as amoeboids
Phytoplankton •photosynthetic or plant constituent of plankton; mainly unicellular algae
Autotrophic •of or relating to organisms (as green plants) that can make complex organic nutritive compounds from simple inorganic sources by photosynthesis
Heterotrophic •requiring organic compounds of carbon and nitrogen for nourishment; "most animals are heterotrophic"
Spore •a small usually single-celled asexual reproductive body produced by many nonflowering plants and fungi
Decompose •separate (substances) into constituent elements or parts
Fungicide •A substance used to kill fungus
Hyphae •A hypha (plural hyphae) is a long, branching filamentous cell of a fungus, and also of unrelated Actinobacteria.
Vascular tissue •tissue that conducts water and nutrients through the plant body in higher plants
Fertilize •To make (the soil) more fertile by adding nutrients to it; To make more creative or intellectually productive; To cause to produce offspring through insemination; to inseminate
Pollination •transfer of pollen from the anther to the stigma of a plant
seed •a mature fertilized plant ovule consisting of an embryo and its food source and having a protective coat or testa
Tracheophyte •vascular plant: green plant having a vascular system
Bryophyte •Bryophytes are all embryophytes ('land plants') that are non-vascular: they have tissues and enclosed reproductive systems
Gymnosperm •gymnosperms - "naked seed" plants, including conifers
Angiosperm •plants having seeds in a closed ovary
Botanist •a biologist specializing in the study of plants
Conifer •any gymnospermous tree or shrub bearing cones
•any gymnospermous tree or shrub bearing cones •Biodiversity is the variation of life forms within a given ecosystem
