60 imagesFunghi are one of the four broad kingdoms of organisms (plants, animals, fungi and bacteria) that exist. Their function in the tropical environment, is to typically act as as decomposers, though some attack living plants and animals and could be classified as parasites. Unlike plants, most of which use energy from the sun to produce food, fungi don't make their own food; they break down (or decompose) plant or animal matter to use as food. The humid environment in many of Thailand's forests make for a large biodiversity of species, many of which are unknown, or unnamed in science.
