Teppo Rämä gave a terrific presentation on marine fungi yesterday (he's a mycologist specialising in arctic marine fungi).
I was amazed to learn that there are fungi which parasitise diatoms! There are also marine fungal species which have demonstrated the capacity to degrade polyethylene microplastics.
He shared a slide which showed a massive increase in fungal activity following the Deepwater Horizon oil spill; very interesting from a bioremediation perspective.
the recordings will be made available for on-demand viewing in the next few weeks. i'm not sure if they'll be freely viewable or not (i paid to attend).
here's the link:
