Basidiomycota Ecology Characteristic Features Reproduction and Classification


The Phylum Basidiomycota is classified into 5 on the basis of the current phylogenetic system

Homobasidiomycetes: holobasidium fungi in hymenium uncovered. For illustration E.g. Horticulture

Heterobasidiomycetes: heterobasidic fungi in hymenium uncovered, for example. Mushroom Jelly

Urediniomycetes: basidiocarp-fungi, septate basidia e.g. Mushroom Rust

Use: smut mushrooms. 

Gasteromycetes: fungi not introduced to hymenium

This section is about Basidiomycota which comprise roughly 30% of the known growths. They are generally earthly, saprophytic, parasitic, and, harmonious structures. A few individuals are palatable, some toxic, some stimulating and some therapeutic! They show the event of three unique phases of mycelia development. The existence cycle starts with the essential mycelium. 

Before long, however it offers ascend to the optional mycelium which is dikaryotic for example every cell contains two cores of various yet viable strains. This is the prevailing period of the existence cycle, shaping broad dikaryotic mycelia. The legitimate detachment of the two cores during the advancement of the mycelium happens by the arrangement of Clamp Connections. 

Proliferation happens by agamic and sexual techniques. A biogenetic multiplication is less successive yet when it happens it tends to be by Oidial; Conidia; Chlamydospores and so on Sexual propagation brings about a fruiting body or basidiocarp in many structures. The basidiocarp structures basidia which are the site of karyogamy. 

The basidia might be unicellular, aseptate (at that point called holobasidium) or they might be septate and comprised of 4 cells (at that point called phragmobasidium). In the phragmobasidium the septae might be cross over or vertical. Meiosis likewise happens in the basidium bringing about four haploid cores. These cores are expelled out of the basidia through four sterigma as basidiospores. The basidiospores develop to shape new mycelium after dispersal.


Ballistospore: A spore that is released persuasively Basidiocarp: A fruiting body that produces basidia 

Basidiospore: A spore delivered on the basidium after karyogamy and meiosis 

Basidium: A structure which bears a fixed number of spores after karyogamy and meiosis 

Chiastobasidium: A basidium in which the axle of partitioning cores is arranged opposite to the long hub of the basidium. 

Brace association: A scaffold like association shaped on auxiliary mycelium to keep up the dikaryotic idea of the mycelium 

Dikaryon: A couple of viable cores as a rule from various parent hyphae Dikaryotic mycelium: A mycelium containing dikaryon 

Dolipore septum: A septum with a focal pore encompassed by barrel formed growing of divider, additionally covered by punctured film called parenthosome; normal for Basidiomycota. 

Ectomycorrhiza: A mycorrhiza where growth becomes just remotely not infiltrating the plant body 

Holobasidium: A solitary celled club molded basidium Mycelium: Mass of hyphae framing the plant body of an organism 

Phragmobasidium: A partitioned basidium, divisions might be level or vertical Rhizomorph: An assortment of substantial hyphae to frame a thick strand taking after old roots 

Stichobasidium: A basidium in which the shaft of partitioning cores is situated corresponding to the long pivot of the basidium.
