Why is the fossil record of insects so good, while the
fossil record of fungi is poor, when they are both made
of chitin?...........

Which came first; plant roots or mycorrhizal symbiosis?

How do the chitinophilic fungi (or mycoparasites) sequester 
chitinase to prevent self-autolyzation?


ever curious..............
