• Cord-forming woodland basidiomycete fungi form extensive, interconnected mycelial networks that scavenge nitrogen (N) efficiently. We have developed techniques to study N dynamics in such complex mycelial systems in vivo . • Uptake and distribution of the nonmetabolised, 14 C-labelled amino-acid analogue, α -aminoisobutyrate ( 14 C-AIB) was continuously imaged in Phanerochaete velutina growing across scintillation screens using an enhanced photon-counting camera. • Oscillations in the 14 C… CONTINUE READING
