Question and answer
What makes chytrids better suited than other fungi to living in water or moist soil?
Answer: Chytrids are the only group of fungi with swimming spores or gametes. The flagellated cells are produced in ball-like sporangia and when released they swim off to find a new source of food. [ That makes them better suited in living water or moist soil than other fungi. Modern chytrids play a role in the decay and digestion of many aquatic animals. Recently, chytrids have been
implicated in the serious decline of frog populations in many parts of the world. The chytrids grow inside cells of the skin and disrupt the frog’s breathing. ]
