Some on Plant Entire Lives except Spore Stage Some Part of Lives on Plants & Part on Dead Tissues of Same Host on Ground Soil Fungal Pathogens On Plants On Dead Tissues of Host As Saprophytes on Decaying OM Wide Host Range Can Survive in Soil many Years Need Host occasionally to Increase Populations Which Part of the Plant?

Some Nonobligate Fungi never Contact Living Plant Cells What Kind of Environment Do They Require? Usually Presence of Water Spores Broader Ranges of Temp & Moisture Zoospores Require Free Water Production, Movement & Germination Impacts of Fungi Many Harmful to Humans & Animals Plant Diseases Rot & Contamination of Foods Can Destroy almost every Kind of Manufactured Good Many Useful to Humans Yeasts for Baking & Brewing Antibiotics & other Drugs Organic Acids Commercially Produced with Fungi Citric Acid Steroids & Hormones Certain Stinky Cheeses bio.miami.edu info.asapsupplier.com How Do Fungi Spread?
