A fungus (plural fungi) is a eukaryotic organism that digests its food externally and absorbs the nutrient molecules into its cells.
Fungi are very important economically: yeasts are responsible for fermentation of beer and bread, and mushroom farming is a large industry in many countries.
Fungi are the primary decomposers of dead plant and animal matter in many ecosystems, and are commonly seen on old bread as mold.
