Few people realize that mushrooms (or fungi) are not plants, as they do not develop through the process of photosynthesis, and they are not animals, as they are unable to move independently. Unlike plants and animals, they do not have tissues or conductive elements.
They reproduce through spores and not through embryonic stages. However, their biochemistry shows partly animal and plant features. Therefore, in addition to the plant and animal kingdoms, there is a third one called Fungi (from the Latin word fungus, derived from the Greek word sphóngos or sponge), which includes more than 100,000 different species.
