The purpose for this experiment is to investigate the effect of acidic solution on fruticose, foliose, and crustose lichens. This experiment is being done to model the effect of acid rain on lichens in the natural environment and to use this information to determine if these lichens can be used as...

This science fair project was conducted to find out how the environment affects the decaying process in wood. The following tests were carried out by first immersing the wood in either rainwater, acid water (which simulates acid rain), sea water or ...

This science fair project was conducted to ascertain what conditions will help prevent bread from becoming moldy. The bread was kept in different environments to observe the time taken for mold to...

This experiment was performed to compare how adding fruit paste to bread made it last longer without s. The tests were done using paste made from prunes, raisins and dates added to the bread before...

The purpose of this experiment was to determine the best way to reduce blue mold (Penicillium), and gray mold (Botrytis cinerea) on red D’Anjou pears, in open air. The information gained from this experiment would benefit most fruit growers, especially pear growers, by reducing their reliance on fungicides....

The yeasts are one very important group of fungi. The common yeast used in baking bread grows very fast. You can complete an experiment in two days! The basic idea in this method is to measure the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) released during the growth of yeast....

Plant cell wall material is composed of three important constituents: cellulose, lignin, and hemicellulose. Lignin is particularly difficult to biodegrade, and reduces the bioavailability of the other cell wall constituents. A bit of knowledge about each of these constituents is helpful in understanding the vastly different rates that different plant materials...

The simplest method of growing molds is to put a substrate like bread in a moist chamber. The substrate provides nutrients, and the chamber maintains the high humidity that favors the growth of fungi. ...

Ectomycorrhizal fungi allow their host plants access to organic forms of N through enzymatic mineralization of the substrate and enhanced absorption of amino acids and mineral N. The cost to the plant is carbohydrates that support fungal growth and metabolism. Enrichment of soils with mineral N, as through atmospheric deposition, may affect the growth and function of these fungi by direct effects of...
