    1. How would you classify a heterotrophic eukaryote with a filamentous thallus? What traits would you need to make your determination?
    2. Fungal hyphae are much smaller in diameter than plant roots. How would this influence the ability of a mycorrhizal fungus to acquire water and nutrients from the soil, in comparison to the plant?
    3. Compare and contrast yeast and conidia.
    4. What classifies something as a mold?
    5. Where do you most often see molds and how might this relate to the reproductive strategy of these organisms?
    6. Describe what is happening in the Rhizopus life cycle diagram below. Label important structures and note where fertilization and meiosis are occuring. Choose a different color to represent haploid and diploid tissues.
