EVOLUTION LINK Justify (a) classifying fungi as opisthokonts, (b) classifying microsporidia as fungi, and (c) grouping ascomycetes and basidiomycetes as sister clades.

Summary Introduction

To justify: Opisthokonts are the superclass of fungi.

Introduction: Fungi are haploid eukaryotic organisms having hair-like hyphae which cluster together to form mycelium. They can be single-celled or multi-celled organisms. They are mostly saprophytic but the parasitic form is also present. They are the biggest factor of loss of farm produce. The phylogenetic research and molecular phylogeny have given a vast amount of information about the development of different classes of fungi.

Explanation of Solution

Fungi are considered to be opisthokonts with evidence from systematics studies. Structural characters analysis and molecular data suggest a similarity between fungi and animals. The phylogenetic studies of the evolution of fungi show that the fungi are more similar to animals than to any other kingdom. The phylogenetic studies are supported by molecular data which shows similarities in these groups. The opisthokonts include a group of similar fungi and related organisms including some of the animals...

Summary Introduction

To justify: Microsporidia is classified as fungi.

Introduction: Fungi are haploid eukaryotic organisms having hair like hyphae which cluster together to form mycelium. They can be single-celled or multi-celled organisms. They are mostly saprophytic but the parasitic form is present. They are the biggest factor of loss of farm produce. In recent years fungi are used to produce a variety of biochemical, enzymes, and drugs.

Summary Introduction

To justify: Basidiomycetes and Ascomycetes are regarded as “sister clades”.
