I am posting this recently received e-mail here as a courtesy to Jan, and
shall inform (him/her?) that I have done so.  I do not know if Jan has
access to bionet.mycology, so please be sure to e-mail, not just post
here---but post to the newsgroup also---I want to know, too!

I am student biological engineering and I was wondering if there is some
research on mushrooms as bioindicators.
It is known that symbiose is very important for the metabolism of the
plant. Ii is also known that mushrooms are very sensitive for pollution.
In this way mushrooms are very important for the agriculture.Not only as
bioindicator but also as parameter for the productivity .

I wonder if you know people working on this matter.
Or when you have interesting information about it I would be happy
to get it.

I hope I don't keep you too long from your work,
