All fungi are microscopic in size with most spores ranging in size from 2 to 20 microns. A Micron is 1/1000000 of a metre in size. There are an enormous number of fungi with over 6000 genera and only 69,000 species have been described out of an estimated 1.5 million species.
Many of the visible manifestations of fungi are commonly known and include yeasts, mould growth, mildew, large mushrooms, puffballs, and bracket fungi. These are all the result of the convergence of individual fungal units coming together to create larger structures.
The study of fungi is called mycology. A mycologist is a person who can identify fungal species and has an understanding of fungal ecology. The two main branches of mycology are medical mycology and environmental mycology. Only an environmental mycologist should be consulted for identifying indoor and outdoor fungal species for understanding the ecology of mould contamination in buildings.
