Lightning damage & Fungi

Recommended Posts

No, the info comes from my note book.

 

No worries Gerrit, you know what I'm like with me visuals :biggrin:

 

 

Have you ever come across any of the myxomycetes on lightning damage exposed sapwood ?

No, not directly on the exposed sapwood, but on (the mycelium of) fungi growing on/from it, for instance Badhamia utricularis on Stereum species.

Don't think I've specifically come across that myxomycete before. But wondering if what I may have thought was Fuligo (on occasion) might have been Badhamia instead.

 

I guess the thin strand that the fb is held from, is the give away ?

 

Note to self (must look Closer) :biggrin:

The only thing B. utricularis has in common with Fuligo species is the colour of the plasmodium, the aethalia of Fuligo septica and the sporangia of Badhamia utricularis are both different in colour and in shape.

Kind of, but I'm angling down the line of whether there is any effect on exposed sapwood from the actual strike.

 

water is turned to super heated steam by the voltage, so just wondering if there is any physiological change to the woody cells of sapwood during this process that may effect colinisation strategies.

no, lightning strikes and forest fires are as old as the fungi that have evolved to take advantage IMO broken cells are broken cells.
