Plants are eukaryotic autotrophs (with chlorophyll therefore carrying out photosynthesis, producers).
Fungi are eukaryotic heterotrophs (without chlorophyll) living either as saprophytes; feeding on dead or decayed matter or as parasites.
Plants are the producers in an ecosystem.
Fungi generally are the decomposers of the ecosystem.
Plant cell wall is made up of cellulose.
Fungal cell wall is made up of chitin.
Plants have definite cell wall.
Fungi may be septate or aseptate
Plant cells generally posses single nucleus.
Fungal cell may be uninucleate or multinucleate.
Plant body is differentiated into stem, root and leaf.
Fungal body is filamentous made up of mycelium and hyphae, non-parenchymatous without complex organs or differentiation.
In plants, stored food is starch.
In fungi, stored food is glycogen.
Plants reproduce by seeds.
Fungus reproduce by spores.
