How exactly higher fungi decompose their food?

How much oxygen do they need, which reactions happen?

I do not think that they require Oxygen to digest food. They need oxygen for the process of cellular respiration. As far as how the food is digested the post above is correct. They exude enzymes and chew things up extracellularly. They then take in the smaller compounds and monomers. They take these things in with the help of an electrochemical gradient that they establish by exuding protons into the local environment.

What I would basically like to know is how much oxygen do the mushrooms need per kg of digested subtrate(whatever substrate it is....)
Let?s take rye.
If a cow eats the rye, does she need more oxygen to utilize the converzation of the rye nutrients into energy than fungi?

Very interesting question...hmmm...I think that the cow would need more oxygen to digest the food than the mushroom...just my thoughts.

RIP Matt, your friendship and your contributions to the world of fungi will be missed. Unfortunately we never got to hunt together.

You're going to need to know the metabolic pathways to do a full material balance on the system. Do shrooms have a krebs cycle etc...?

Interesting question but I doubt the research has been done. On the other hand I see a PhD thesis or postdoc position here
