Question by Bela: What is absorptive nutrition?How does this allow humans to exploit fungi to produce different products ?
What is meant by absorptive nutrition? How does this characteristic of the fungal lifestyle allow humans to exploit fungi to produce different products(such as food or antibiotics).
Thank you !
Answer by Mike
Absorptive Nutrition- describes a way of obtaining energy and nutrients in which digestive enzymes are secreted into a substrate, then smaller, easily assimilated molecules are absorbed through the cell membrane. As decomposers, Fungi use it.
Ways that we use fungi to produce products include –
Cheese (cheeses age using fungi)
Bread (Yeast is used to allow leavened bread to “rise”)
Penicillin is derived from the fungus Penicillium.
Hope that helps!

Question by That Girl: What nutrition information should I know before working at Pets at Home?
I already know the basics about animal nutrition, but I was wondering if there’s anything that’s a must-know.
I’m aware PaH provide training, but I’d like to prepare myself before hand. You don’t need to give me full information, just names of stuff and I can then search for the information.
Answer by Glamgalborn
Well it depends on what you’re working on with the animals, what animals you’re working with, and what equipment you have to do those things. But almost every thing you do will need schooling for you to do yourself.
For a start though, you are going to need to know more then just the basics for the nutrition.Actually you need to do as much research for that as possible! That will help a lot.
I you can give a little bit more info about what you want to do, you’ll defiantly get a better answer.
Sorry, I hope this helps!!
