35sex chat CONKS SHELF FUNGIConks are also known as shelf fungi or bracket fungi. They are members of the fungus kingdom which includes mushrooms molds and yeast. Conks are the spore producing fruiting structures of a fungus. They are found growing on tree trunks and limbs stumps fallen logs and even on structural lumber. The main body of the fungus is called the mycelium long thin filaments that penetrate and inhabit the wood of a tree. As the mycelia feed on the wood they exude enzymes that break down cellulose or lignin and cause wood rot although some woodinhabiting fungi protect the tree against other more lethal fungi. Shelf fungi are important recyclers in forest ecosystems. In the process of decomposing woody material they recycle nutrients build soil and create suitable habitats for birds arboreal mammals and insects. Most conks are inedible because they are tough and corky or woody but some conks are collected for their medicinal value or for smoking mixtures. Others are collected for decorative and artistic uses. There are many species of conks in Alaska. Some of them are quite abundant others are rare. The following species are known to be collected in Alaska Fomes fomentarius.. Fomitopsis officinalis. Ganoderma applanatum. Inonotus obliquus Phellinus igniarius.. Piptoporus betulinus..
