This glossary of mycology is a list of definitions of terms and concepts relevant to mycology and fungi. Terms in common with other fields, if repeated here, generally focus on their mycology-specific meaning. Glossary of biology and glossary of botany contain related words that can be relevant in mycology as well. List of Latin and Greek words commonly used in systematic names and Botanical Latin may also be relevant, although some prefixes and suffixes very common in mycology are repeated here for clarity.

A

a-

an-

Prefix meaning "without" or "not". [1]
aboospore
An asexually-produced (parthenogenetic) oospore. [2]
abrupt
Terminating suddenly; appearing to be cut off transversely; truncate. For example, the stipe of some Hohenbuehelia has this characteristic. [3]
abscission
Separation, such as a spore detaching from a sporogenous cell. From Latin abscissio, breaking off. [4]
abstriction
A method of spore formation in fungi characterized by abjunction and then abscission. Spores are produced in a sporogenous filament. In abjunction, they are then separated by transverse walls or septa, with the result spores are grouped in short chains. In abscission, successive portions are cut off and released. [5]

Fungi that digest wood. Mostly basidiomycetes, although a few ascomycetes also possess this ability. Generally categorized into brown rot, which digests a tree's cellulose and hemicellulose but not its lignin; white rot, which can also digest lignin; and soft rots, which are similar to brown rots in attacking cellulose and hemicellulose, but require moist wood and available nitrogen, e.g. from nearby soil. Two other notable types are dry rot (a slight misnomer, as some dampness is still required), a brown rot caused by Serpula lacrimans; and wet rot, several other species including cellar fungus. [400]
