Mouldy Fungus !!!
« on: 27/04/2006 18:47:08 »
Dearest Chums of Academic Propensity & most certainly of My Admiration,

What's the difference between a fungus and mould ? (for the wonderful peeps that are the Americans amongst us......mould = mold...phew !!..glad I cleared that up)...

....Is there a difference ?...is a mushroom a mould ?..or just a fungi ?..they are related yes ?

Thanks

Men are the same as women, just inside out !

Some of my best friends are fungus and the will be offended to be linked on the same page as mould.

Is this what you were apologising for in advance?

The Kingdon Fungi includes molds
but most mold don't produce fruits (ie. mushrooms)

Fungus- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fungus
mold- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mold

it has to do with their life cycle
many molds are asexual
but mushrooms are produced sexually though.
(with hapliods into dipliods, but not mushroom humping :))
