Fungi are saprotrophic....... which means they eat dead things. They are nonspecific to their food. The secrete enzymes OUTSIDE of their cells and digest their food then reabsorp the yummies. They are heterotroph and facilitated anaerobic (Can live with or without oxygen). They are more related to eukaryotes than prokaryotes(bacteria). They have a sexual and asexual reproduction cycles which depends on the conditions they are in. They predominate in the haploid state because its easier to reproduce with half the genes you half! duhhhh! Overall, the answer to your question is the environment will be filled more with dead things and would smell bad. Think of Fungi as garbage collectors......the will recycle the stuff you dont want.

On a side note, Yeast is fungi. Unicellular though. The haploid state produce spores which are inactive and also haploid. Fungi are cool too. They dont have centrioles (Microtubule makers) and mitosis occurs in the nucleus. Speaking of nucleus, they have MANY nucleus per cell. Like muscle cells in human. Well..... not really...... i dont know.
