Objectives

  • Describe the microscopic features by which the commonly encountered Zygomycetes species are differentiated.
  • Relate the realignment of genus and species changes within the Zygomycetes based on DNA sequence analysis.
  • Define distinct species differentiation and reassignment of select members of the hyaline and dematiaceous molds.
