Los hongos ("fungi", de acuerdo con el sentido tradicional), acorde con los avances de estudios ultraestructurales, bioquimicos y moleculares consisten en un grupo polifiletico que comprende tres Reinos: a) Chromista, que incluye los "hongos acuaticos" (Oomycetes y Labyrinthulomycetes); b) FUNGI; c) Protozoa, comunmente conocidos como "hongos mucilaginosos" o Myxomycetes. Estos tres grandes grupos son aceptados en esta [10.sup.a] edicion que comprende sendas partes: un diccionario de FUNGI, uno de organismos fungoides del tipo Chromista-Stramenopolia y otro de organismos fungoides del tipo Protozoa.
