WARNING: You have to be CAREFUL with this paper - it is a classic but it predates the formal separation of the major eukaryotic Kingdoms (which was published in 1969) so Bartnicki-Garcia discusses slime moulds (Acrasiales) and two other groups (Oomycota and Hyphochytriomycota) as "lower fungi" whereas they are NOW considered NOT to be fungi at all and are placed in different Kingdoms.
