How does a fungus grow in water?
It doesn’t have any natural predators, and it doesn’t eat anything it can’t digest, said Daniel R. Hochberg, a microbiologist at the University of Arizona.
The fungus, Fusarium oxysporum, makes its living by collecting water from the atmosphere and using it to build a protective shell.
But when the soil in a waterway dries out, it releases a toxin that causes the water to boil and kills the fungus.
In some cases, that toxic brew is deadly.
It can also damage humans’ eyes and lungs.
The toxin is present in the air and can be inhaled.
Waterborne pathogens can also get into people’s lungs, causing them to become seriously ill.
Hacking to control the fungus is a big challenge.
Scientists have found the fungus in more than 30 countries, but most researchers are still trying to figure out how to eradicate it.
In the U.S., scientists have developed a method to find the fungus before it starts to grow in soil and water, which has been effective in combating the fungus over the past few years.
They also hope to develop a vaccine to protect against the fungus that’s causing more infections.
But there are still some challenges to tackling the fungus, and they will likely get even more difficult as the fungus spreads throughout the country.
Soil is more important than ever, said Andrew B. Fuchs, a water systems expert at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
And there’s no question the fungus can grow in the soil.
But Fuchs said the fungus isn’t the problem.
The real threat is climate change.
The climate change problem is global warming, not just in the U: Climate change is causing the amount of water vapor in the atmosphere to increase, which increases the humidity and makes it easier for microbes to grow, Fuchs told reporters at the Water Science Center at the Georgia Institute of Technology.
That means the soil can become more acidic.
So Fuchs and other scientists have been working to find ways to slow down the growth of the fungus and protect against its impact on humans.
“I think the water is the big obstacle,” he said.
“We’re still looking at a lot of different ways that we could work around that.”
Hochberger’s team was able to control a few fungi in a lab experiment, but it’s not clear how many exist.
Hoehner’s team is working on finding them.
The work on the water pollution threat is exciting, said Hochback, who has been working on the research since 2008.
But it is far from over.
“If we don’t find them, it will be really, really difficult to control climate change,” Hochber said.
The U.N. is expected to release a report in February that will show how much the fungus will affect people’s lives.
The team hopes to make a significant impact on how climate change affects the world’s water supply.
