The Basidiomycetes

  • Ervin H. Barnes


The common mushrooms of the field, the golf course, and the steak platter are Basidiomycetes. So too are the puffballs, shelf fungi, rusts, and smuts. These fungi produce basidia and basidiospores. Characteristic of most species are clamp connections, secondary and tertiary mycelium, and the dolipore septum. The life cycles are generally dominated by the dikaryotic phase.
