Influence of variable lignin content on brown rot decay of wood

IRG/WP 1320

T Nilsson, G F Daniel

Compilation of published data and new experiments with brown-rotting fungi on different timber species suggest that their decay activity, in contrast to soft rot and white rot fungi, is not greatly influenced by the type or amount of lignin present.
