Wood decayed by white rot


A scanning electron micrograph of wood that has been decayed by white rot. The white filaments of the fungi can be seen among the degraded wood cells. They produce a diverse array of enzymes that degrade the wood. The wood structure, including lignin and cellulose, has been largely destroyed by the fungus. Credit: Robert A. Blanchette / Joel A.
