Degradation dynamics of lignocellulose materials by wood-rottingPleurotus fungi


When grown on wheat straw,Pleurotus decomposes both the lignin and the cellulose components of the substrate. The course of degradation differs during growth and fructification. The losses of dry mass during growth were about 20 %. The absolute amount of hemicelluloses, cellulose and lignin was decreasing. Hemicelluloses and lignin were degraded at a higher… (More)
