Watch a Fungus Trap and Digest a Roundworm
For a dramatic demonstration of predatory behavior, add a nematode to the culture of fungus you grow. The fungus, commonly found in soil, has adhesive loops at the ends of its hyphal branches. As the nematode passes through a loop, it becomes trapped, and the fungus digests it. It includes cultures of Arthrobotrys conoides and Rhabditis, instructions, and materials for a class of 30 students. Note: Includes perishable materials. Please specify delivery date.
