That IS a fun fact Paul!

Psathyrella ammophila is a great example
Gregory Mueller

I was waiting for that story — the last Leccinum I’ve eaten.
Paul Kümmer
01:11:53
It depends what they are remediating. They are also not very efficient for remediation. Bacteria is better for this use.
Paul Kümmer
01:13:12
For remediation of cellulose acetate like in cigarette butts, they are fairly efficient. But with heavy metals, oils and most contaminants, there are better options for remediation.
SERENELLA LINARES
01:13:30
There are a couple of papers I read about 5-6 hrs ago that demonstrated some fungal species taking metals from the soil and transforming them from their toxic form into non-toxic naturally occurring minerals
SERENELLA LINARES
01:14:49
That happened (in the example I am remembering right now) via cytoplasmic reactions and crystallization inside of the fungal hyphae
