Bioluminescent Fungus Kit Beginning—Easy to perform; requires no experience in microbiology. For a class of 30. Dubbed “foxfire” by hunters in the Appalachian Mountains, the fungus Armillariella mellea emits a low-level bioluminescence. The phenomenon can be observed 1 to 2 weeks after subculturing and lasts about 8 weeks. Room must be completely dark to observe the bioluminescence. Includes a plate culture of Armillariella mellea, 10 plates of bread crumb agar, a sterile disposable scalpel, an autoclave disposal bag, and culturing instructions. 155798 Per kit $43.95 Simulate air pollution in 2 class Carolina® Carnivorous Fungus Kit periods! Intermediate—Easy to perform; requires some basic training in microbiology. For a class of 30. Students subculture and then observe the growth of the soil fungus Arthrobotrys conoides on cornmeal agar plates. When Rhabditis, a nematode, is inoculated onto these plates, the fungus traps, digests, and absorbs the nematode’s internal contents. Illustrates absorptive nutrition of the fungi. The exercise requires 10 days from setup to completion.

For a class of 30. Lichens are extremely sensitive to air pollution. A decrease in their numbers in a particular location is an indication of increasing air pollution. Students stain a lichen sample and then subject it to various cation solutions. The speed with which the dye is leached out of the lichen correlates with the speed at which these cations from polluted air are taken up by lichen in nature. The exercise can be completed in 2 class periods. A paper punch is required, but not included. With teacher instructions. Kit includes: Foliose Lichen Sample Screw-Cap Test Tubes Methylene Blue Solution Cadmium Chloride Solution Lead Chloride Solution Lithium Chloride Solution Manganese Chloride Solution Sodium Chloride Solution Zinc Chloride Solution Windex® (control) 155820 Per kit $83.50
