Mushrooms arn't plants they are fungi. I would think this discussion would belong more in the microbiology section as a lot of fungi are mircobes and even through mushrooms obviously arn't they were covered in my microbology unit. I done a bit of reserach on it and found that it's very posionous. As for what fungi feeds on, they live on dead matter. For eg when food rots the mould that grows on it is fungi. Mushrooms I think live off rotten organic matter in the soil. Here's an intro to fungi which inc a bit on destroying angel, how it feeds and lives:

Let me know if it's helpful. :mrgreen:

Botany doesn't study only plants. Both algae and fungi, although not classified as plants, are the study of botany.
And fungi can also be parazites

I've never come across fungi in botany before. This is the definition I got from this site:

botany
(Science: study) The scientific study of plant life.

The branch of biology that studies plants.

The study of plants.
