Definition of fungi:
- A group of thallophytic plants of low organization, destitute of chlorophyll, in which reproduction is mainly accomplished by means of asexual spores, which are produced in a great variety of ways, though sexual reproduction is known to occur in certain Phycomycetes, or so- called algal fungi.
- of Fungus
- See Fungus.
Admitting that fungi are independent plants, much more complex in their relations and development than was formerly supposed, it will be expected that certain forms should be comparatively permanent, that is, that they should constitute good species.- "Fungi: Their Nature and Uses", Mordecai Cubitt Cooke.
