Abstract The organic residues produced in the brown-rot (BR) of wood by many basidiomycetes fungi are ubiquitous on most coniferous forest floors. This degraded wood tissue is characterized by low levels of polysaccharides and a high proportion of demethylated lignin with minor glycerol side chain oxidation. Because of the selective enrichment in an aromatic dihydroxy-rich lignin residue, the chemical and biological reactivity of BR degraded wood will be distinctly different from white rot, the… CONTINUE READING
