Detecting my interest in wood decay fungi, Leonard gave me a number of reprints of his technical bulletins on the polypores of Pennsylvania. I also became aware of and obtained a copy of his out-of-print book, Illustrated Genera of Wood Decay Fungi, published in by Burgess Publishing Company. Sadly, Leonard is now deceased.

Soft-rot fungi. Soft-rot fungi grow on wood in damp environments. They are the characteristic decay fungi of fence posts, telegraph poles, wooden window frames, the timbers of cooling towers, and wood in estuarine or marine environments. They have a relatively simple mode of attack on wood, illustrated . Fungi Growing on Wood A site assembled by Gary Emberger, reflecting work he's done over the last few years to create an identification guide to wood decay fungi based on an out-of-print work by Charles Fergus called Illustrated Genera of Wood Decay Fungi. The website includes dichotomous keys, descriptions, and, for many species, quite a few photographs illustrating many diagnostic .

My appreciation for this group of fungi continues to deepen over the years. Because of my contact with Dr. Fergus, I was aware of his book Illustrated Genera of Wood Decay Fungi. I was intrigued by the concept of a key to fungi which are restricted to a specific habitat, in this case, wood. A wood-decay fungus is any species of fungus that digests moist wood, causing it to species of wood-decay fungi attack dead wood, such as brown rot, and some, such as Armillaria (honey fungus), are parasitic and colonize living trees. Excessive moisture above the fibre saturation point in wood is required for fungal colonization and proliferation.

A detailed introduction to the fundamentals of wood pathology provides a way into the subjects of applied mycology and tree care for readers without previous special.

Wood decay is caused by minute plants called fungi. These plants consist of microscopic threads that are visible to the naked eye only when many of them occur together (fig. But it is easy to see the fruiting bodies of fungi, from which their spores are distributed (fig. Some fungi merely discolor wood, but decay fungi destroy the fiber.

Wood-destroying fungi play an important role in nature, because they are the only forms of life capable of reducing wood to its initial constituents.

However, they can also be dangerous for people and property, as they can impair the stability and fracture-safety of trees. This book gives detailed information, based on new and original scientfic findings, on the examination and effects of the.

Molds also can increase the capacity of wood to absorb moisture, opening the door for an attack by wood decay fungi.

Moisture control methods used to inhibit wood decay fungi will also eliminate conditions favorable for mold to grow. - 2 -File Size: KB. The mushrooms, mildews, smuts, rusts, and puffballs are fungi (sing. fungus) and do not have stems, leaves, roots, fruits, or vascular systems.

They are usually defined as simple plants with filamentous, branched, thread-like structures having true nuclei and no chlorophyll. Wood decay of live trees is associated with a complex sequence which involves infection ecology of the primary decay fungi, response of the host tree to invasion, and microbial succession within the decay column as well as interactions with invertebrates and vertebrates (Merrill and Shigo ; Shigo ).
