The huge hit U.K. medical show Embarrassing Bodies has treated armpit abscesses, fungal infections, and much worse.
There are three methods of reproduction of the lichen: by fragmentation, by soredia, by the formation of fungal spores.
For a grape of this parentage, it is remarkably free from fungal diseases.
Decay can also be prevented by submergence and burying, if by so doing logs are kept from fungal attacks.
Its fruit and foliage are very nearly immune to the fungal diseases of the grape.
Rotundifolia is remarkably resistant to the attacks of all insects and to fungal diseases.
It is somewhat susceptible to fungal diseases, mildew especially, and needs more than ordinary care.
The vines are productive and are unusually free from attacks of fungal diseases.
At best it is not a northern grape, ripening its fruit in New York only occasionally, and is much subject to fungal diseases.
In America it has never gained great popularity on account of its susceptibility to fungal diseases.
fungal fun·gal (fŭng'gəl) or fun·gous (-gəs)
Of, relating to, resembling, or characteristic of a fungus.
Caused by a fungus.
Plural fungi (fŭn'jī, fŭng'gī)
Any of a wide variety of organisms that reproduce by spores, including the mushrooms, molds, yeasts, and mildews. The spores of most fungi grow a network of slender tubes called hyphae that spread into and feed off of dead organic matter or living organisms. Fungi absorb food by excreting enzymes that break down complex substances into molecules that can be absorbed into the hyphae. The hyphae also produce reproductive structures, such as mushrooms and other growths. Some fungi (called perfect fungi) can reproduce by both sexually produced spores and asexual spores; other fungi (called imperfect fungi or deuteromycetes) are thought to have lost their sexual stage and can only reproduce by asexual spores. Fungi can live in a wide variety of environments, and fungal spores can survive extreme temperatures. Fungi exist in over 100,000 species, nearly all of which live on land. They can be extremely destructive, feeding on almost any kind of material and causing food spoilage and many plant diseases. Although fungi were once grouped with plants, they are now considered a separate kingdom in taxonomy. See Table at taxonomy.
