Yeasts are eukaryotic, single-celled microorganisms classified as members of the funguskingdom. The yeast lineage originated hundreds of million years ago, and 1,500 species are currently identified.[1][2][3] They are estimated to constitute 1% of all described fungal species.[4]Yeasts are unicellular organisms who evolved from multicellular ancestors,[5] with some species having the ability to develop multicellular characteristics […] read more

A mycorrhiza (Gk. μυκός, mykós, “fungus” and ριζα, riza, “roots”,[1] pl mycorrhizae, mycorrhizas) is a symbiotic (generally mutualistic, but occasionally weakly pathogenic) association between a fungus and the roots of a vascular plant.[2] In a mycorrhizal association, the fungus colonizes the host plant’s roots, either intracellularly as in arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF), or extracellularly as […] read more

Amanita muscaria, commonly known as the fly agaric (pronounced /ˈæɡərɪk/) or fly Amanita (pronounced /ˌæməˈnaɪtə/), is a poisonous and psychoactive basidiomycete fungus, one of many in the genus Amanita. Native throughout the temperate and boreal regions of the Northern Hemisphere, Amanita muscaria has been unintentionally introduced to many countries in the Southern Hemisphere, generally as […] read more
