This chapter explores the mechanisms that enable fungi to communicate with one another during reproduction, and related signaling processes that allow hyphae to cooperate when they form fruiting bodies. Topics discussed include reproduction by oomycete water molds, water molds that are self-fertile hermaphrodites, zygomycete sex, and sexual behavior in mushroom-forming fungi.
