Fungi are ubiquitous.
Some examples of the biodiversty would be:
Mutualistic symbioses between fungi and animals
leaf cutting ants raise fungi for food Leucoagaricus and Lepiota
Fungi that exploit microscopic animals
ex. constricting rings Dactyella
ex. Hypochytrium catenoids
Lichens (dual organisms?)
Just to name a few,the lists goes on and on
Do a www search, the above terms should provide you with more than
enough to start, a good mycology text would be even better.
My names and classifcations might be a little off
