Fungi is one of the five kingdoms in [[biology|Linnaean Taxonomy]]. It contaiins the Phyla :

 Phylum [[Chytridiomycota]] - of definite relationship to the fungi, but often placed among the [[Protista]].
 Phylum [[Zygomycota]]
 Phylum [[Ascomycota]]
 Phylum [[Basidiomycota]]
 Phylum [[Deuteromycota]]: fungi of uncertain placement, grouped for convenience

Lichens are often given their own phylum ([[Mycophycophyta]]) but really belong to various Ascomycete and Basidiomycete lineages.
