Clumps of intertwined hyphae
a. Fungi are eukaryotic cells, which lack chlorophyll, and they cannot generate energy through photosynthesis. They do not require aerobic environment
b. Yeast is the unicellular growth form of fungi. These cells can appear spherical to ellipsoidal. Yeast reproduce by budding.
c. When buds do not separate, they can form long chains of yeast cells, which are called pseudohyphae. Hyphae are threadlike, branching, cylindrical tubules composed of fungal cells attached end to end. These grow by extending in length from the tips of the tubules
d. Molds (also called as mycelia) are composed of clumps of intertwined tangled mass of branching hyphae. These grow by longitudinal extension and produce spores
e. Spores are reproducing bodies of molds.
