    Description

    The Forest Service's research on decay fungi and decay caused by fungi is done mainly in two research work units at the Forest Products Laboratory. One unit, the Center for Forest Mycology Research, performs biosystematic research on root-rot and products-rot fungi in the genera Armillaria, Phellinus, and Phlebia and maintains the culture collection supporting this research and other research on decay fungi. A second unit, Biodeterioration Research, concentrates on studying the basic mechanism of wood decay.
