It was by all accounts a great success, culminating in a grand fungal dinner. The Woolhope Club’s outings became an annual fixture, attended by many of the great biological luminaries of the day, including Charles Darwin’s geological mentor, Sir Charles Lyell. Its dinners were the subject of cartoons in the Gardener’s Chronicle: Pickwickian scenes of merriment amid sizzling puffballs and steaming urns of blewits.
Minnesota designated the morel mushroom ( morchella esculenta ) as the official state mushroom in 1984.

Trichonympha is a genus of parabasalian protists that live in the intestines of many, if not most, termite species . They are symbiotes , [ 1 ] in that they break down the cellulose in the wood and plant fibers their hosts eat.
An endosymbiont is any organism that lives within the body or cells of another organism, i.e. forming an endosymbiosis ( Greek : ἔνδον endon "within", σύν syn "together" and βίωσις biosis "living"). Examples are nitrogen-fixing bacteria (called rhizobia ) which live in root nodules on legume roots, single-celled algae inside reef-building corals , and bacterial endosymbionts that provide essential nutrients to about 10–15% of insects. Many instances of endosymbiosis are obligate; that is, either the endosymbiont or the host cannot survive without the other, such as the gutless marine worms of the genus Riftia , which get nutrition from their endosymbiotic bacteria.
Nov. 2, 2010 — Researchers for the first time have shown that drinking beet juice can increase blood flow to the brain in older adults -- a finding that could hold great potential for combating the progression of dementia.

Termites are a group of eusocial insects that, until recently, were classified at the taxonomic rank of order Isoptera (see taxonomy below), but are now accepted as the epifamily Termitoidae , of the cockroach order Blattodea .

La ministre de l'écologie, Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet , n'a pas exclu que la France refuse de prolonger la durée de vie de ses centrales nucléaires. S'exprimant dans le Journal du dimanche , NKM a toutefois insisté sur le fait qu'il ne fallait pas "prendre de décision radicale en pleine crise" , il faut attendre "le retour des inspections de chaque centrale pour tirer les conclusions" .
