  TOENAIL FUNGUS, Cures for Finger and Toe Nail Fungus...
Toenails are more likely to be affected by fungus since it is attracted to a dark and damp environment which is more common on the foot than on the hand.
Some estimates are that over 10% of the North American population have fungus of the toenails, and it is one of the most common ailments that foot specialists attend to.
The fungus is sealed beneath the toe nails in a dark, moist, warm environment that it loves to grow in.

 Fungus Gnats, HYG-2114-95
Fungus gnats occasionally become a nuisance indoors when adults emerge in large numbers as mosquito-like insects from potted plants or flower boxes containing damp soil rich in humus.

 Chinchilla Fungus Page
The fungus that affects chinchillas are fungi that grow on the skin of the animal irritating first the outer layer of skin, and then deeper skin layers.
Areas such as these give the fungus a great start but the fungus does not have to start in the chinchilla unit to be a problem; air fans that bring air in from over wet manure piles for instance can bring in the disease.
Fungus is an airborne disease, it can be spread through the air, by your hands, by a breeding male, sharing dustbaths or trays, etc..

 FUNGUS, The species specific understanding of, and difference between bacterial phase and fungal phase developments in ...
The notion that anyone is viewing fungus balls in phase contrast or darkfield is technically a complete misconception, as the forms which are being regarded as fungal developments are appearing in an alkaline milieu in the blood which will not support the fungal stages of development.
The forms that are being viewed (and mistaken for fungus stage) are actually colloid thecits, thrombocytes, chondrits, ascits, synascits, and mychits, all of which are part of the bacterial phase of development, which develops in an alkaline milieu.
The primitive bacterial phase microorganisms that are mistakenly called fungus may be part of the developmental phase of a species that has a fungal variant or may culminate as a fungus, but it is an error to call it a fungus in the blood.

 Environment & Nature News - Humungous fungus: world's largest organism? - 10/04/2003
A study of a tree-killing fungus in rugged northeast Oregon, USA, found that a single individual covered an area equivalent to about 1,600 football fields, according to a report in the current issue of the Canadian Journal of Forest Research.
The researchers now believe the fungus is part of the natural cycle of renewal and decline within forests and that it is often present in areas with little obvious tree damage.
Planting species less susceptible to the fungus - such as western larch, western white pine and ponderosa pine - and harvesting susceptible individuals during thinning would reduce the fungus's impact on forest yields, she said.

Fungus is the third kingdom of this world, living, yet neither plant or animal.
Fungus is a global stucture, so when you remove the fungus from your buildings, even if you think you killed it.
In many cases the fungus and the alga which together make the lichen may each be found living in nature without its partner, but many other lichens include a fungus which cannot survive on its own -- it has become dependent on its algal partner for survival.

 Honey Fungus - Friend or Foe?
Honey fungus used to be considered one species, Armillaria mellea, however recent work has indicated that several distinct species may be found in the UK which vary in their pathogenicity.
The best indication of attack by Honey fungus is the presence of white fungal growth beneath the bark on roots and the collar portion of a dead or dying tree [9].
The stumps and roots of dead trees are ideal breeding grounds for the fungus, therefore the most effective way to prevent the spread of the disease is to remove all dead stumps and roots from your garden.

 Humongous Fungus A New Kind Of Individual
By collecting samples of the fungus from different points in the forest and observing the reactions as they were grown together on Petri dishes, researchers mapped the range of the fungus and confirmed its genetic identity.
Researchers thought that individual fungus organisms grew in distinct clusters in the forest, marked by the ring-shaped patches of dead trees that they spotted during overhead flights.
This means that the fungus, in all its far-flung glory, is a natural participant in the forest cycle.

 Humungous Fungus Fest
The fungus was discovered by Myron L. Smith and James B. Anderson, both of the university of Toronto.
"The fungus is an intergral part of the ecosystem, feeding on decayed wood and producing carbon dioxide essential for the process through which plants generate life-giving oxygen" said Johann N. Brunn during a guided tour of the area.
Although the "Humungus Fungus" is actually located in Mastodon Township, the Crystal Falls Business Association, compiled of business owners in both the City and Township of Crystal Falls, saw an opportunity to draw tourism to the area and established the "Humungus Fungus Festival".

 Comprehensive guide to fungus and fungal and yeast infections and treatment.
Tip growth enables fungus to grow continuously into fresh zones of nutrients and also to penetrate hard surfaces such as plant cell walls, insect cuticle, your skin, etc. This is why fungus are so important as plant pathogens and as decomposer organisms.
Whereas fungus reproduce by producing spores (the tiny spherules in the fungus photo), yeast reproduce by dividing (called "budding" or "fission") in a fashion similar to animal cells.
Fungus and yeast are similar to the spider -- they produce toxins and enzymes that can disable, kill, and dissolve their food sources so that the nutrients can be assimilated.

Toenail fungus, also called onychomycosis, is a relatively common condition that disfigures and sometimes destroys the nail.
In a less common variety of toenail fungus, called white superficial onychomycosis, the nail turns white rather than yellow or brown, and the surface becomes soft, dry and powdery.
However, even after the fungus is dead, the nail may not immediately or ever become clear and normal-looking.

 EXTINCTION CRISIS FOR AMPHIBIANS / Frogs, toads and other species dying off -- new fungus magnifies environmental ...
A strange new fungus disease that kills frogs and toads and every other species of amphibian is spreading around the globe and -- combined with pollution and overdevelopment -- is driving more and more of the creatures to extinction, a coalition of the world's top biologists warns.
But the fungus, a unique species called Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis, could start taking on a larger role in the increasing extinction because of global warming, which scientists suspect is lowering amphibians' resistance to the disease.
The fungus was discovered in Australia and Panama only eight years ago and since then has spread across Europe and both the Americas, causing skin infections called chytrid disease in every amphibian species it attacks.

Fungus gnat adults are a nuisance to greenhouse operators, interiorscapers as well as consumers.
Fungus gnat larvae may also aid in the introduction and spread of plant diseases such as Pythium, Verticillium, Cylindrocladium, Scelerotinia and Theila-viopsis.
Fungus gnats normally follow a predictable cycle of population development: The first two generations are the largest, followed by a leveling off or decline in numbers.
