A. they can grow in high concentrations of sugars and salts.
B. diseases caused by fungi are called mycoses.
C. identification of fungi usually involves examination of spore types.
D. they are capable of metabolizing complex carbohydrates found in newspaper and wood.
E. they are strict aerobes

admin answers:

The answer is “E. They are strict microbes”. Most fungi are aerobic, but some, such as “a Neocallimastix sp. Strain (LM-1), a Piromonas sp. Strain (SM-1), and a Sphaeromonas sp. Strain (NM-1)”, are anaerobic. The above were isolated from the rumens of sheep.
