Ba·sid·i·o·my·co·ta

(bă-sid'ē-ō-mī-kō'tă),
A phylum of fungi characterized by a spore-bearing organ, the basidium, that is usually a clavate cell that bears basidiospores after karyogamy and meiosis. Some mycologists have raised the class Basidiomycetes to the phylum or division level.

Ba·sid·i·o·my·co·ta

(bă-sid'ē-ō-mī-kō'tă)
A phylum of fungi characterized by a spore-bearing organ, the basidium, that is usually a clavate cell that bears basidiospores after karyogamy and meiosis. As found in the environment, basidiomycetes are generally plant pathogens and only rarely cause disease in humans.

Basidiomycota

(Basidiomycotina) a group of FUNGI generally with septate (see SEPTUM) HYPHAE and CLAMP CONNECTIONS. They are commonly called ‘club fungi’ because of the club-shape of the BASIDIUM that bears the sexual SPORES (basidiospores). The spores are exposed on the basidium. Members of the group include RUSTS, SMUTS, MUSHROOMS, TOADSTOOLS, PUFFBALLS and BRACKET FUNGI. Many members form associations with ROOTS - See MYCORRHIZA.
