May 8, 2012 Fungi lecture

The theme of this week's class focused on fungi. Therefore, in order to gain basic knowledge of fungi, we had a guest lecturer and a campus tour today.
Fungi are one of the most important decomposers in nature, and their spores are what make them so distinctive from other organisms. After heading out the classroom, the professor led us through the lawn near the water fountain where we stopped to see a cherry tree that has been infected by a white rot fungus. White rot fungi can access almost everything. They are very efficient, but will eventually go away when carbon is exhausted.
