Example text

The mycelium of this fungus consists of a 'fairy ring' with exploratory mycelial cords at its outer margin behind which is a zone of diffuse, exploitative mycelium in which bleaching of the leaf litter occurs. If the exploratory cords enter barren domain greater than the width of the annulus, the cords cease extension, the exploitative phase is not produced and a persistent gap forms in the ring. Maintenance of exploration therefore allows the colony to expand its boundaries, but can only be sustained by exploitation over relatively small distances.

This results in such phenomena as mycelial-yeast dimorphism (Gow Chapter 19), microcycle conidiation (Anderson and Smith, 1971) and multiple secondary spore types (Ingold, 1984; Webster, 1987). Once mycelial development is under way, branches begin to emerge, and may do so with varying frequency and at varying angles, representing different degrees of commitment to radial (explorative) or tangential (exploitative/ consolidative) growth. The higher the ratio between the radial and tangential growth processes, the lower is the fractal dimension of the structure, the higher the thrust, and the greater its polarity.
