    A. Nonmotile reproductive cells and multicelled structures, often walled; germinate following dispersal from the parent body.
    B. Represent major lineages of fungal evolution.
    C. A mesh of branching fungal filaments that grows over and into organic matter, secretes digestive enzymes, and functions in food absorption.
    D. Fungi that obtain nutrients from non-living organic matter and cause its decay.
    E. Fungi that extract nutrients from tissues of a living host.
    F. External secretion of enzymes to break down organic compounds prior to cell absorption of nutrients.
    G. Each filament in a mycelium; consists of cells of interconnecting cytoplasm and chitin-reinforced walls.
    H. A richly diverse group of heterotrophs that are decomposers.
