AbstractThe growth and lignin decomposing properties of 106 cultures of wood destroying and soil fungi have been studied on a synthetic calcium lignosulphonate medium. Certain species of Fusarium and Alternaria, decomposing a maximum of 12 and 18% lignin, respectively, were the most effective in utilizing the lignosulphonate. Although a few species of wood destroyers were equally effective, in general this group of fungi showed great variation and was more difficult to cultivate on the medium employed. A slight positive correlation was found between the Bavendamm tannic acid reaction for identifying lignin decomposing fungi and the lignosulphonate breakdown after 60 days' growth.
