There are over 100,000 species of fungi. Many fungi are good
and useful (edible mushrooms would be an example of these) while some cause
problems (some fungi can injure plants and humans).
Every week the IEQ Review will describe a specific
morphological origin and potential health effects. If you
would like to know about a specific organism and/or would like it published in
The IEQ Review please email Dr. Rajiv Sahay with the Environmental Diagnostics
Laboratory (EDL) at Pure Air Control Services email@example.com
This week we will cover…
