Arctic Life/Arctic Fungi/Basidiomycetes

From Arctic Bioscan Wiki

The Basidiomycetes take several forms and include some of the more recognized groups of fungi: mushrooms and toadstools, club and coral fungi, bracket fungi, earthstars, puffballs, and stinkhorns. Some important plant pathogens, including rusts and smuts, are basidiomycetes, and about 20 species form lichen associations with various algal partners.
