About Trametes versicolor

More research has been done on Trametes versicolor than any other mushroom species for medicinal qualities. Polysaccharide Krestin (PSK), which is obtained from the mycelium, shows improvement of immune functions, antiviral effects, and cholesterol-regulating effects. Furthermore, there is improved quality of life after surgery when administered with chemotherapy, and extended 5 and 10 year survival rates particularly for those diagnosed with colorectal and stomach cancers. Even though safety issues have not been extensively studied, they seem to be mostly neglected because no side effects have been published yet.

First journal entry

Position of Maianthemum racemosum in a phylogenetic tree:
Branching off from Eukaryotes, then 353620 species, 40578 species, 3207 species, 490 species, mayflower, 9 species, then the branch from 2 species.

Adaptation that all observations have:
None, because not all observations are native to North America. For example, the greater burdock is native to temperate regions of the Old World, in very different and far away regions such as British isles and Japan.

Unique adaptation for one observation:
The hooked tips of the involucral phyllaries of the greater burdock are an adaptation for seed dispersal. The animals pick up the seeds of the mature seed heads as the hooked tips secure to animals' fur, and the seeds can be dispersed to new locations this way.
