A Synopsis of the Orders and Families Included in This Book

  • M. H. Zoberi


The word macrofungi is a general term used to cover a multitude of higher fungi having large, macroscopic, complex fruit bodies. The group includes mainly terrestrial species of diverse form and habitat, and consists of Ascomycetes, in which the spores are produced inside a globose, clavate, cylindrical or occasionally filiform sac-like structure known as an ascus; and Basidiomycetes in which the spores are borne externally on the surface of special structures called basidia. A nuclear fusion occurs during the development of both asci and basidia.
