ABSTRACT

Among the whole living organisms, macrofungi can degrade lignin. Although this
ability of macrofungi is very important for ecosystems, sometimes it can be trouble for
living organism and ecosystems. Some of these macrofungi can be parasite for living
trees. Especially, Fomes sp., Phellinus sp. Trametes sp. Ganoderma sp. etc. live on the
living trees, such as Pinus sp., Salix sp., Fagus sp., Populus sp., Platanus sp.,
Liquidambar orientalis. These fungi damage the forest ecosystem by means of death of
the trees. It must be developed some new techniques and tools for protecting the healthy
forests.

Keywords: Forest ecosystems, parasitic macrofungi
