This is a mycoremediation tale focusing on native fungi and pollutants. Journey with me through research on new ways to harness fungi to break down pollutants in urban and rural environments. First, we'll explore this approach in the context of factory-polluted sites and then we'll explore new research into using native fungi to mitigate the impacts of wildfire. We delve into the fungi on site, create strategies to play to the strengths of these fungi, and find exciting mycoremediators beyond the white rot fungi!
