11.8 Development of a fungal fruit body

Development of a fungal fruit body requires that hyphal growth takes on a particular pattern. A pattern, which, time after time, produces the same species-specific morphology. This demands high levels of control and regulation. We have already indicated some of the regulatory circuits that are involved in cell and tissue differentiation (in Chapter 9; particularly in the sections entitled Mycelial differentiation, and Globose structures: sclerotia, stromata, ascomata and basidiomata). In the next Chapter we will examine the nature of the developmental pathways that give rise to fungal fruit bodies.
