Fungi have cell walls which contain chitin (as opposed to cellulose in the cell walls of plants).

All fungi are eukaryotic, possessing membrane-bound nuclei (containing chromosomes) and a range of membrane-bound cytoplasmic organelles (e.g. mitochondria, vacuoles etc).

Comment by mehleen

Most Fungi, except the unicellular fungi, produce hyphae which are collectively known as mycelium. These long fibers are the fungi way of transporting monomers around the organism, as well as being able to secret enzymes through the mycelium so as to digest the substrate externally.

Fungi have a multinucleate cytoplasm

Fungi acquire their nutrients by either absorption or decaying materials, they also range from being extremely small (microscopic), to large enough to eat (eg mushroom)

Comment by spencerfinch

Fungi acquire nutrients via absorption from decaying materials. They range in size and are mutlicellular.

Fungi are saprophytic (causing decay) and free living.
