Abstract

Living organisms possess the ability to adapt to changing environmental conditions. Without this property the evolution of life on earth would have been impossible. With respect to this general phenomenon, fungi form no exception. It makes it possible for them to survive under unfavorable circumstances, for example, the presence of fungitoxicants in the environment. In other words, fungi may, usually by mutation, become resistant or less sensitive to fungicides.
