Three dimensional computer representations of growth of microbial populations in wood
A Bruce, B King, C Bruce, G M Smith
Creosoted distribution poles inoculated with either Lentinus lepideus, biological control organisms including Triochoderma or combinations of both were extensively sampled to monitor the spread of organisms. A computer program which enabled the results to be portrayed in a three dimensional graphic form was developed and is illustrated. Results showed that computer mapping of this type usefully enabled microbial interactions in wood to be evaluated.
