Abstract

Micrographs made with a scanning electron microscope are used to demonstrate the ultrastructural differences among types of decay. Ultrastructural differences demonstrate the patterns of decay in coniferous wood: brown rot fungi degrade cellulose leaving a lignin skeleton, white rot fungi degrade both lignin and cellulose, and white-pocket rot fungi degrade primarily lignin.
