Teppo Rämä gave a terrific presentation on marine fungi yesterday (he's a mycologist specialising in arctic marine fungi).
I was amazed to learn that there are fungi which parasitise diatoms! There are also marine fungal species which have demonstrated the capacity to degrade polyethylene microplastics.
He shared a slide which showed a massive increase in fungal activity following the Deepwater Horizon oil spill; very interesting from a bioremediation perspective.
