  • species
  • The following description of the characteristics of Basidiomycota traces the life cycle of a 'typical' species, beginning at the site of meiosis. (tolweb.org)
  • Miettinen O, Spirin V, Niemelä T (2012) Notes on genus Aporpium (Auriculariales, Basidiomycota), with a new species from temperate Europe. (springer.com)
  • This dataset contains the digitized treatments in Plazi based on the original journal article Zhao, Ying, Liu, Xin-zhan, Bai, Feng-yan (2019): Four new species of Tremella (Tremellales, Basidiomycota) based on morphology and DNA sequence data. (gbif.org)
  • hyphae
  • Basidiomycota have more septate hyphae than Zygomycota, though their septae are perforated, allowing cytoplasm to flow freely between cells. (sparknotes.com)
  • Unlike animals and plants which have readily recognizable male and female counterparts, Basidiomycota (except for the Rust (Pucciniales)) tend to have mutually indistinguishable, compatible haploids which are usually mycelia being composed of filamentous hyphae. (wikipedia.org)
  • environments
  • Other biochemical compounds of Basidiomycota that have practical uses include astaxanthin, a red pigment produced by the basidiomycetous yeast Phaffia (used to add color to farmed salmon), and certain enzymes from wood-decaying Basidiomycota that have potential applications in paper production and bioremediation (decontamination of polluted environments using biological agents). (tolweb.org)
  • characteristics
  • Indeed, Basidiomycota are so variable that it is impossible to identify any morphological characteristics that are both unique to the group and constant in the group. (tolweb.org)
  • structures
  • Unfortunately, Basidiomycota frequently attack the wood in buildings and other structures, which has negative economic consequences for humans. (tolweb.org)
  • plants
  • Ectomycorrhizal Basidiomycota help their plant partners obtain mineral nutrients from the soil, and in return they receive sugars that the plants produce through photosynthesis. (tolweb.org)
  • include
  • Other "toxins" produced by Basidiomycota include hallucinogens, which are produced by members of the genus Psilocybe (and other groups). (tolweb.org)
