It might not be immediately obvious, but fungi are a very important group of organisms. Anthony Wheeler (ASTJ 41 (2)) outlines the confusion for science teachers caused by his Year 8 science textbook classifying the fungi as plants. Whilst this does simplify matters, it is does the fungi an injustice. Fungi form a distinct Kingdom, quite apart from animals, plants and bacteria. In this article, I will briefly discuss some of the important characteristics of the fungi, and describe an exercise that will introduce students to factors influencing the development of mushroom fruiting bodies.
