Laboratory culturing and decay testing with Physisporinus vitreus and Donkioporia expansa originating from identical cooling tower environments show major differences


Laboratory culturing and decay testing with Physisporinus vitreus and Donkioporia expansa originating from identical cooling tower environments show major differences



Document International Research Group on Wood Preservation ( IRG/WP/96-10184): 8 pp.



Both basidiomycete fungi Physisporinus vitreus and Donkioporia expansa were isolated from identical cooling tower environments in Belgium. Azobe (Lophira alata) heartwood, a very durable tropical wood species, was totally deteriorated in cooling towers in a similar way by both fungi.
