Post Mycological bio-remediation - There be fungus amoung-gus...
Very surprised not to see any mention of mycological bio-remediation or other mycological solutions to waste issues here, especially since fungi breakdown and metabolize hydrocarbons such as diesel or gasoline and other contaminants that resist or complicate bio-remediation as well as bio-concentrate many heavy metals, even some radioisotopes such as the cesium isotopes. Thought this might be right up our alley as it were..... anyway;

Recommend looking at a copy of Paul Stamets' text "Mycelium Running" http://www.amazon.com/Mycelium-Running-Mushrooms-Help-World/dp/1580085792/

La Dena Che’ Stamets' Masters Thesis "Best Mycorestoration Practices for Habitat Restoration of Small Land Parcels" pdf is here... http://archives.evergreen.edu/masterstheses/Accession86-10MES/Stamets_L-MESthesis2012.pdf

Thanks Craig. We almost exclusively focus on BSF here, but I'm grateful for the post. Personally, I can't keep up with half of my BSF projects!
