Basidiomycotina All fungi in this subdivision belong to one class, the Basidiomycetes. Puffballs, mushrooms, smuts, rust, and shelf fungi on tree branches are also basidiomycetes. The sexual spores of this class are basidiospores. Deuteromycotina This fourth division of the Amastigomycota is an artificial group that was created to place any fungus that has not been shown to have some means of sexual reproduction. Often, species that are relegated to this division remain here for only a short period of time: as soon as the right conditions have been provided for sexual spores to form, they are reclassified into one of the first three subdivisions.

Be sure to judge size differences by reading the scale beside each organism. The following phyla are listed according to the degree of complexity, the simplest first. PHYLUM PLATYHELMINTHES (Illustrations 2, 3, 4, 5) The invertebrates of this phylum are commonly referred to as flatworms. The phylum contains two parasitic classes and one class of free-living organisms, the Turbellaria. It is the organisms in this class that are encountered in fresh water. 1 are Dugesia, Planaria, Macrostomum, and Provortex.

Rod-shaped bacteria may vary considerably in length; have square, round, or pointed ends; and be motile or nonmotile. The spherical, or coccus-shaped, bacteria may occur singly, in pairs, in tetrads, in chains, and in irregular masses. The helical and curved bacteria exist as slender spirochaetes, spirillum, and bent rods (vibrios). In this exercise an attempt will be made to demonstrate the ubiquitousness of these organisms. No attempt will be made to study detailed bacterial anatomy or physiology.
