Most fungi are saprophytic and not pathogenic to plants, animals and humans. However, a relative few fungal species are phytopathogenic, cause disease (e.g., infections, allergies) in man, and produce toxins that affect plants, animals and humans.
Can fungi carry out photosynthesis? Fungi are unlike algae in that they are heterotrophic. This means that they rely on food from their environment to obtain energy. Fungi, like animals do not carry out photosynthesis. Unlike animals, fungi do not ingest (take into their bodies) their food.
Can fungi spread from person to person? Common Fungal Skin InfectionsTinea infections are easily spread from person to person, from touching someone who has the infection or by touching surfaces where the fungus is present (e.g., shower floors, areas around swimming pools, and locker rooms). Some fungal infections are caused by a type of yeast,-Candida.
Where do viruses come from? Some viruses may have evolved from bits of DNA or RNA that "escaped" from the genes of alarger organism. The escaped DNA could have come from plasmids (pieces of naked DNA that can move between cells) or transposons (molecules of DNA that replicate and move around to different positions within the genes of the cell).
