Fungi depend on mutualistic relationships with plants to obtain nutrients.

  

Fungi cannot produce digestive enzymes so they can absorb only starch and cellulose.

  

Sugars and nucleic acids cannot enter the cytoplasm without first being digested.

  

Only small molecules can diffuse across the plasma membranes of hyphae; larger ones must first be broken down.
