Abstract

Sapwood blocks of lime () and pine () placed to one side of growing colonies of several wood decay fungi markedly influenced their hyphal extension patterns, particularly by causing positive or negative tropic responses. A method was devised to measure and quantify these responses and analyse them statistically. Chemotropic responses were demonstrated by and in the presence of air-dried and heat-dried wood but not by or The implications of chemotropism as a factor influencing the invasion and colonization of wood are discussed.
