These spores are darkly pigmented, with melanin in their walls. They are released and usually wind-dispersed by breakdown of the thin sporangial wall, but in some species they are water-dispersed. The tip of the sporangiophore projects into the sporangium as a columella, which remains after the spores have been shed (Fig. 8). Sporangiospores can germinate rapidly in suitable conditions, repeating the asexual cycle. Within the Zygomycota there are several variations in the ways that sporangia and sporangiospores are produced.
Foci of infection in the lungs. Mitosporic fungi such as Penicillium, Aspergillus and Fusarium spp. g. the aflatoxins of Aspergillus flavus, discussed in Chapter 7). Several mitosporic fungi are major plant pathogens, including the vascular wilt fungi Verticillium dahliae and Fusarium oxysporum (Chapter 14). Others parasitize insects – for example, the many strains of Metarhizium and Beauveria that have potential for biological control of insects (Chapter 15). ). The fungus-like organisms In addition to the true fungi, several fungus-like organisms have traditionally been studied by mycologists.
Collectively, these diseases are termed zygomycosis (infections caused by members of the Zygomycota). In the vast majority of cases the infection is associated with predisposing factors. For example, diabetics with ketoacidosis are among the most vulnerable to infection, which often develops in the rhino-cerebral area (the nasal passages, progressing into the brain). But many other predisposing factors can be involved, including severe malnourishment in children, severe burns, cancer, lymphoma, and immunodeficiency or immunosuppression.
