    1. Compost and Wood Rot Fungi

    2. Decomposition of Plant Biomass Weakly parasitic Sugar Fungi Mucorales (in the Zygomycota) Cellulolytic Lignolytic

    3. Plant Cell Walls Primary Wall Cellulose - 25% Protein - 10% Other Polysaccharides 65% Secondary Walls Cellulose - 44% Lignin 26% (2nd most abundant cmpd) Hemicellulose - 30%

    4. Distribution and Properties of Lignin Xylem (wood) Tracheids Vessels Fibers Sclereids Makes wood durable, resistant, rigid Polymer of phenolic alcohols
