AbstractTo know the minimum moisture threshold (MMThr) in wood allowing for the initiation of the fungal decay by basidiomycetes is relevant both from a theoretical and a practical point of view. The present work summarizes the knowledge about MMThr and presents experimental data obtained by improved laboratory decay tests on
