Review Game – Fungi and Land Plants
1) all of the following are characteristic of fungi except
a. they acquire their nutrients by absorption
b. their body plan is a netlike mass of filaments called hyphae
c. their cell walls consist mainly of cellulose
d. they are specialized as saprophytes, parasites or mutualistic symbionts
e. they are eukaryotes
2) a coenocytic structure implies being
a. multiceluular
b. multinucleate
c. sparphytic
d. heterotrophic
e. mutualistic
3) fungi are classified into five major divisions based mainly on
a. mode of nutrition
b. whether they are unicellular or filamentous
c. characteristics of their reproductive structures
d. composition of the cell wall
e. the presence or absence of a dikaryotic stage
4) all fungi share which one of the following characteristics
a. symbiotic
b. heterotrophic
c. flagellated
d. parasitic
e. saprobic
5) a fungal phylum whose spores possess flagella is the
a. Ascomycota
b. glomeromycota
c. basidio mycota
d. chytridiomycota
e. zygomycota
6) a lichen is an intimate symbiotic association between a fungus and a
a. cyanobacteria
b. green algae
c. parasitic fungus
d. tree root
e. either a or b
7) An example of a unicellular fungus is a:
a. mold
b. yeast
c. yeast
d. rust
e. smut
8) in some yeast, reproduction occurs by means of a tiny protrusion on the surface
of the parental cell, the nucleus of the parent cell divides and one daughter nucleus
migrates into the protrusion which then pinches off to form a smaller new cell. This
kink of reproduction is best termed
a. fragmentation
b. binary fission
c. meiosis
d. sexual
e. budding
9)Most fungi are saprobes, which means that they
a. live in mutually beneficial relationships with plants or green algae
b. feed on dead and decaying organic matter
c. are predatory
d. are parasites
e. are autotrophic
10) which of the following is a characteristic of the Ascomycota?
a. flagellated spores
b. zygospore formation
c. formation of a sac containing 8 haploid spores during sexual reproduction
d. formation of a basidium bearing 4 haploid spores during sexual
e. production of an embryo by mitosis following conjugation of (+) and (-)
mating types
