1.When bacteria and fungi are competing for the same resources, the bacteria usually dominate and prevent the fungi from growing. As a result, fungi have adapted so that they can live (and thrive) in environments that are very hostile to bacteria. Give five examples of fungal adaptations that allow them to colonize environments
Please help with the following problem. Provide at least 300 words.
Briefly discuss the evidence supporting the relationship between the presence of fungi and greater plant diversity. What symbiotic association is the most likely basis for this relationship?
Suppose a tree squirrel living in the conifer forests near La Grande eats seeds that it extracts from pine cones and fungi that it finds on the forest floor. Also, suppose that currently it takes an average of 2 minutes to find a cone and 4 minutes to find a fungus. It takes 10 minutes to break open the cone and eat the seeds an
Please help address the following problems.
1- List the regions of the human body where mycotic diseases can be observed.
2- Explain why fungi are characterized as being either saprophytic or parasitic. How does the fungi benefit by being saprophytic or parasitic?
1. Fungal spores:
a)are used to identify fungi
b)can't be seen in a light microscope
c)are only produced under harmful environmental conditions
2. Which of the following would have glycosidic bonds
3. The eucaryotic cell organelle that most resembles a bacterial cell
Discuss in detail how fungi get their nutrition. Relate this mode of nutrition to how a bed of fungal hyphae can so rapidly breakdown organic materials such as fallen leaves that are in contact with the soil.
Discuss the differences and similarities between bacteria and fungi. Include a comparison of size, cell type, reproduction, mode of deriving food, and good versus bad effects on other organisms and the environment. Be sure to give specific examples of good and bad bacteria and fungi including their scientific names.
