Abstract

1. (a) Great variations in wood-decaying ability were observed among the tested strains; some of them were significantly more active than the standard test strain, while others were significantly less active. There is close correlation between measurement of loss in dry weight and measurement of loss in breaking strength. (b) The activity of the strains so far collected from the Clyde Valley area is generally lower than that of most of the others. The survey is being continued with a long term objective of looking for patterns in the geographical distribution of differences in wood-decaying ability. 2. (a) No correlation has been found between the differences of wood- decaying ability of a variety of dikaryotic and of monokaryotic cultures and their rate of increase of colony diameter on malt agar at 21
