Hi Ron

Isn't the basis for this made on 'in vitro' studies?

What's was being analysed in them is the ability of a fungus to colonise 
sterilized wood in laboratory conditions.  Given the research of Lynne Boddy 
and her colleagues, we know this isn't what's happening 'in vivo', where it 
matters.
