In several series of 262 samples, Higher Fungi, especially from the Tremellales and Gastero-mycetes, were analyzed by atomic absorption spectroscopy on their content of the trace metals manganese and iron. Both elements were found to be present in higher concentrations in some species of the Tremellales and Phallales. In the case of wood-destroying fungi, the Fe-and Mn-contents of the substrates were compared to those of the corresponding fungi. Only the species with the highest level of these
