To purchase this program please visit http://www.greatpacificmedia.com/ Segment from the program Fungi: Decomposers and Parasites. DVD Description Our Fungi DVD begins by describing hyphae - the filamentous, thread-like fungal cells that intertwine to form interwoven masses called mycelium which are usually only visible when differentiated into sexual structures such as mushrooms, puffballs, and powdery molds. How fungi obtain nutrients either through parasitic or mutualistic relationships or decomposing dead bodies is examined before looking at their economic, ecological, and health impacts. The major divisions of fungi are then examined and some of the unique adaptations found in kingdom Fungi discussed.
