About the course:
The fungi constitutes one of the most species-rich groups of organisms and play a significant role in most ecosystems. Furthermore, they have a large cultural and economical significance, e.g., in food and wine production. Genetic factors and reproductive strategies have resulted in an evolutionary pattern different from that of other organisms, and in this course we treat their evolution from the vantage point of modern research.
