Which of the above are sexual structures? Which are asexual structures? (Remember that regular or teleomorphic ascomycetes have both sexual and asexual structures while asexual or anamorphic ascomycetes have only asexual structures)
Which are overwintering structures?
What is an anamorph? What is a teleomorph?
How many ascospores does an ascus contain?
Powdery Mildews have which of the three ascocarps?
What three traits are used to key out powdery mildews?
Be able to recognize asci, cleistothecia, perithecia, stroma, conidia/conidiophores, and asexual fruiting bodies under the compound microscope.
Diseases: eastern filbert blight, white mold, tar spot of maple, apple scab, ergot, powdery mildew, grey mold, early blight, Verticillium wilt.
Basidiomycetes (Club Fungi):
Are Basidiomycetes predominately haploid, diploid or dikaryotic?
Are they septate or aseptate?
Know: basidiospores, basidia (naked or in basidiocarps), basiodocarps, teleospores, telium, spermatia, receptive hyphae, spermagonium, uredospores, uredium, aeciospores, aecium.
Which of the above structures belong to ascocarp basidiomycetes? Which belong to rusts? Which belong to smuts?
Which of the above spores is the direct product of sexual reproduction? Which of the above are overwintering structures?
For some rusts the only functional spore is the uredospores….how does a rust of this type overwinter?
