The Kingdom Fungi

In connection to the work on a book on fungi I created this graphical overview the Kingdom. The branching is mostly compliant with Hibbet et al. 2007 and the size of the groups approximates the number of known species as counted by The Dictionary of Fungi.

The figure can be downloaded here as a hi-res pdf. You may use this freely in your teaching and presentations . . .
