Degradation of lignin and other C-labelled compounds in compost and soil with an emphasis on white-rot fungi

Abstract

Lignin, a recalcitrant compound, is one of the main components of wood, gramineous plants, and products made of these, such as mechanical pulp. The most efficient lignin degraders in nature are white-rot fungi, and their ability to degrade complex and recalcitrant organic molecules also makes them attractive microorganisms for bioremediation of soil… (More)
