This fungus I noticed on the large bark of a mango tree.
I am not sure what type of fungus this is.
I don’t know whether the fungus is good or bad for the trees.
My understanding is fungus on a tree can cause damage to the host by acting like a parasite.
Please correct me if my thought is wrong.
I also get confused between the terms ‘mushroom’ and ‘fungus’.
Let me accept the fact that I know nothing. And even if I act smart…I can’t know everything.
“Now when you cut a forest, an ancient forest, in particular, you are not just removing a lot of big trees and a few birds fluttering around in the canopy. You are drastically imperilling a vast array of species within a few square miles of you. The number of these species may go to tens of thousands. Many of them are still unknown to science, and science has not yet discovered the key role undoubtedly played in the maintenance of that ecosystem, as in the case of fungi, microorganisms, and many of the insects”
