Macro fungi (Mushrooms) are useful agents in the field of bioremediation. Macro fungi are indicators of heavy metal concentrations in habitat. In general mushrooms both edible and non edible have higher capacity to uptake heavy metals. Mushrooms reflect the level of contamination of the soil through different morphological and metabolic characteristics. Edible mushrooms that contain heavy metals beyond certain concentration pose serious threat to human health as they enter in the food chain… Expand
