AP Biology Quizzes & Trivia

In chapter one of our AP Biology class we got to learn more about fungi. Fung can be either single celled or very complex multicellular organisms. They are commonly found on land, in the soil or on plant materials rather than in the sea or fresh water. See how much you remember by taking this quiz.
