BBC News: please check with reliable sources what species you show in your pieces of news. The first picture in your article is not an Aspergillus, but a deuteromycete belonging in a taxonomically different Class, the Zygomycota. Boulder ecologists: please check whether the fungus is active before you speak about what “the fungus is doing” on top of a dry door. Fungi on top of a dry door are doing nothing else than waiting for better times (available water) in order to perform some ecology. Heard about Sleeping Beauty?
