Mold will grow on almost any organic source, if the humidity is sufficiently high. Molds are generally created by filamentous fungi that are omnipresent in the environment. Each species can have different preferences for certain types of organic food sources, ranging from wood to plant debris. Many of these organisms are used in the food industry to produce wine and cheeses and in the pharmaceutical industry for antibiotic production.

We were saddened to hear of Dr. Charles Korns passing from Southeast Missouri State University on September 6th.
Graduates and friends that attended the memorial service held at Southeast Missouri State University are working on an additional memorial, anyone interested in this information please contact Denise Pingel.
