Shiitake mushroom


Fungi are mostly made of many cells. Fungi made of single cells are called yeasts.

Fungi are very important because they break down waste. The leaves on the bottom of a forest would get higher and higher if fungi were not there to eat it.

Fungi are also important producers of food for humans. Mushrooms are fungi. Also yeasts are used to make wine, beer, and bread.
