Sweating Polypores

Sweating Polypores
These red-banded Polypores are very common in our forests and are found on dead and dying trees, in this case on a stump. Often when we find them they are "sweating" and I have never been able to find an explanation of this phenomenon. The weather does not seem to have anything to do with it, or the humidity and I have no idea what the cause might be, nor do I know if the liquid is water or something else, not having dared to taste it. These were photographed in Wallace Falls State Park last autumn.

I found this theory in a comment on the internet. Maybe a possible answer?

"I suspect that the droplets of moisture are primarily water from the region of wood that is being colonized by the fungus. Trees often respond to wounding and pathogen invasion by increasing the moisture level in the affected area. This serves to increase resistant to decay. Perhaps this is a strategy to reduce water content, which would allow the pathogen to spread?"

This is a great example of a process called Guttation --- a term used in botany to describe the process by which plants excrete excess water through drops from their leaves. For some mushrooms, like the Red-Banded Plolypore, this is so common that it is a reliable identification feature.

Nice find & capture =)

Really appreciate the information, Fizzie. I googled "guttation" and enjoyed reading all the information I found.

We don't do any tasting of mushrooms and fungi unless we are absolutely sure they are edible.

An interesting shot and I too was intrigued as to the explanation of the phenomenon. I think Fizgig's explanation makes sense.
