"Morphological changes in the mycelial mass in P. chrysosporium cultures grown in presence of Cd, pyrene, or Cd+pyrene were monitored after 72 hours of growth; equal aliquots from theindividual cultures (freshly stirred to generate a uniform suspension) and 5H) showed the dead filament population, indicating that Cd was toxic but presence of Cd along with pyrene increased the toxicity more than Cd alone. This filament-specific observation contrasted with the overall protective influence of pyrene on the fungal pellet morphology and biomass yield in the co-contaminated medium.
