In Mushroom, The Journal, Issue 66, Vol. 18, No. 1, Winter 1999-2000, p
7, Paul Stamets notes that a common forest fungi of the PNW also
cultivated as a crop by some growers, can degrade diesel fuel spills when
mixed with wood chips. As a white wood-rooting fungi, it presumably can
also degrade such toxins as PCP, DDT, PBP's and dioxins. The fungus name?
Pleurotus ostreatus, oyster mushroom!
