Nature Walk October 5th

From 12:15 pm to about 1:00 pm on October 5th 2021, I walked to the Chestnut Hill reservoir to do my "fungi" nature walk. It was a cold misty fall afternoon with the weather in the mid 50s with the sun nowhere to be found. It was misting rain throughout the walk, and the day for that matter. I went on the walk thinking that it would be really hard to find fungi. But after only a few minutes, I saw quite a few different types of mushrooms. All of these mushrooms are considered fungi which are a part of the Eukarya domain.
The Eukarya domain is the ONLY domain which contains multicellular organisms. Mushrooms consists of millions of cells which put them distinctly in the Eukarya category. Mushrooms also have membrane bound organelles which only the Eukarya domain has. What I thought was most interesting was that mushrooms and humans have extremely similar DNA. There are only a few changes that make us humans and them mushrooms. It just goes to show that all organisms in the Eukarya domain are all closely related. Mushrooms also feed on organic matter which makes them a heterotroph, as they get their energy from Carbon and Hydrogen compounds.
