Fungi Lab Report Introduction: Fungus has its own kingdom in the classifications called fungi. Fungi is a part of eukaryotic organism that organism can include mold and more. A fungus is very similar to plant, however it is not able to produce its own food using photosynthesis nor does it have chlorophyll. Fungi emit exoenzymes that break down complex molecules and then they absorb the remaining smaller compounds as nutrients. Oxygen and moisture is very necessary for the mold to grow and replicate. There are two ways a mold can replicate, sexually and asexually. Asexually is when it involves sporangium, as spores are produced in the sporangium and are released into the environment, where they can come together and replicate.

On day 1, the bread had no change, but the structure of it had finger dug mark on the bread.
