A surprising talent that many saprophytic and endophytic fungi afford is their ability to break down toxins, natural and human-made. The extracellular enzymes they secrete digest an extraordinary array of toxins, with a particular knack for degrading hydrocarbons, which is the basis of many pesticides and herbicides. Additionally, fungi help create guilds of cooperating organisms, setting up collaborating mycobiomes / microbiomes that can help steer ecological recovery from toxic lands into lush, biodiverse, healthier ecosystems.
