Plant pathogenic fungi and fungal-like organisms

The cells are arranged in filaments or hyphae and cause diseases of cultivated crops. Most species are saphrophytic as well as pathogenic and can be grown in artificial cultures. The transmission may occur through the seeds, through the air and soil, or, less often, through insects. Many species from the true fungi have teleomorphic (sexual) as well as anamorphic (asexual) forms.
