Abstract

There have been a number of advances in the understanding of the physiology of the dry rot fungus, Serpula lacrymans, in the last decade. Specifically, studies on the natural origins of the fungus, morphogenesis, toxicant tolerance, environmental sensitivity, nitrogen metabolism, utilization of non-woody materials and biological control have all contributed to this understanding and each is discussed in relation to potential control strategies for the future. In addition, molecular studies involving detection, monitoring of speciation and the heat shock response of Serpula lacrymans have provided new insights into an organism which is uniquely destructive in the built environment.
