Death is what fungi are all about. By feasting on the deceased remains of almost all organisms on the planet, converting the organic matter back into soil from which new life will spring, they perform perhaps the most vital function in the global food web. Fungi, which thrive on death, make all life possible.

Life on Earth 008 - Fungi Paul Andersen surveys the Kingdom Fungi. He starts with a brief description of the fungi phylogeny. He describes some of the major characteristics of fungi; heterotrophy, cell walls of chitin, hyphae, sessile. He describes the characteristics of five major phyla of fungi, ascomycota, basidiomycota, chytridiomycota, glomeromycota and zygomycota.

Get introduced to protists and fungi with the Amoeba Sisters! This video explores basic cell type, mode of feeding, habitat examples, and ecology of both protists and fungi. This video also mentions a few examples of how protists and fungi can be useful- and harmful- to humans. Factual Reference: OpenStax, Biology. OpenStax CNX. Nov 7, 2018 http://email@example.com.

It can *include* many species of organisms, including diatoms, which are typically considered a type of protist although debate about protists (as we mention, a group where many organisms tend to be placed when they don’t completely in other categories) continues to occur. Classification can change as scientists continue to learn more about evolutionary relationships.

Fungi are a biologically important, and often overlooked Kingdom of organisms. In this Naked Science Scrapbook we find out what a fungus actually is, how they live and how they cause and fight disease. Plus we see that many of our favourite meals wouldn't be the same without them.More videos and podcasts from http://www.thenakedscientists.com
This is a new HD dramatic video choreographed to powerful music that introduces the viewer/student to the wonder of the Kingdom of Fungi. It is designed as a motivational "trailer" to be shown in class by Biology, Biochemistry and Life Science teachers in middle and high school and college as a visual "Introduction" to this amazing form of life on Earth. Music is called "Maya". by Paul Dinletir Please rate this video and feel free to comment. If you like it, please help me spread the word by posting links on your social and educational media websites. The more students who can enjoy these dramatic videos, the better! To view all of my videos in Biology, Earth Science, Astronomy, Chemistry and Physics, subscribe to my channel at: http://www.youtube.com/user/sfgregs?f.... I will be releasing new videos periodically. I wish to thank all the quality video and music producers whose postings enabled me to assemble this video for free educational use. To best enjoy this video, turn up your speakers. The music is powerful and dramatic! I can customize this video to add your name or school name at the end credits, for a very modest fee. If interested, email me at "firstname.lastname@example.org" Until recently, you were able to download my videos for free from my other video storage site (vimeo.com). Recently, however, they began charging a significant membership fee to enable that feature, so downloading from there is no longer available. However, you can search for and obtain free download addons for your browser that will allow you to download my videos from either YouTube or Vimeo.
You might see some of these 11 bizarre and creepy looking fungi around the world here are what they're called and if they are edible. Subscribe for new videos Monday Wednesday and Friday! 6. The Bitter Oyster Mushroom This mushroom is found in the local regions of North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia where it grows in clusters located mostly on oak, birch, and beech trees. Bitter oysters happen to be one of the manly bioluminescent mushrooms that exist and it’s only the eastern North American strain that is able to glow, unlike the Pacific strain. It’s thanks to this species of mushroom that the term foxfire was coined by the early settlers. Fun fact: This mushroom is classified as being bioremediation as it has the power to absorb the toxins from environmental pollutants and is able to break down lignin. 5. Stemonitis fusca This is a species of slime mold that isn’t actually a fungus, however, it was at one point that is was classified in the same kingdom. Sometimes they’re still grouped together as a means of convenience. These eukaryotic organisms are able to live as single cells but combine into multicellular reproductive structures. This type of slime mold can be found in small groups forming on dead wood. It’s recognized by its slender stalks that hold up the sporangia that only grows to a height of around 6 to 20 millimeters tall. There’s over 900 documented species of slime mold that exist all over the world. 4. The Blue Milk Mushroom The more common name for this edible mushroom is the indigo milk cap and it can be found in several different areas of the world including East Asia, Central America, and eastern North America, which is why they’re most often found in Chinese, Mexican, and Guatemalan food dishes. When the mushroom is cut open or broken it leaks an indigo milk or as it’s referred to “latex” and the mushroom begins to change into a green color once exposed to oxygen. This species of mushroom is definitely considered to be one of the most beautiful, yet, weird species in the world. 3. The False Morel Mushroom Also known as the brain mushroom and you can see why the false morel will definitely prove to be fatal if ingested raw and not properly prepared. A good number of people have died. False morels are actually considered as a famous delicacy in areas such as Eastern Europe, Scandinavia, and in the regions of the Great Lakes of North America. In certain places in the world, it’s illegal to sell, in others, it must come with a warning label. The safety of its consumption has been recently brought into question as it’s been noted that even if properly prepared, toxins in the mushroom can still remain and quite a number of people have developed acute toxicity. So, there could very well be some long-term health effects related to this mushroom. 2. The Bleeding Tooth Fungus Hydnellum peckii is an interesting looking inedible mushroom that is definitely not something you want to try and eat. What you see in the following photo is a young bleeding tooth fungus that is secreting a red liquid. It’s not blood or anything, even though it does resemble it. It’s really just a liquid that is filled with anticoagulant properties. That means it’s capable of preventing blood clots. When the fungus ages it turns brown and looks unrecognizable compared to its youth. They’re most common in North America but are also found in other parts of the world. 1. The Amanita muscaria More commonly referred to as the fly agaric, this mushroom is very famous for its psychoactive properties. Not only that, but this mushroom is also considered to be highly poisonous, that is, if it’s eaten raw and not properly detoxified first. Careful, though, there’s no antidote but there are several methods as far as treatment goes. Under several different laws and ordinances, the Amanita muscaria is illegal in The United Kingdom, Australia, and The Netherlands. This fungus also happens to be quite famous in pop culture what with being featured in the Super Mario Bros. franchise and in the Alice and Wonderland book to name a few.
INGREDIENTS: CORNMEAL OKRA, COCONUT OIL, VEGAN BUTTER,SEA SALT Boil water with okra at med. heat until soft add sea salt and vegan butter throw some water out the pot with okra to add later. Add water to dry cornmeal to soften it, then add it to boiling water stir until lubricated for about 10 minutes add water as it starts to try out keep stirring until the fungi gets soft. WARNING!! CONTINOUS STIRRING IS REQURED SO IT DOESNT BURN.
