A Biological Clock: update

IMG_2911 IMG_2912

The large fungal colony here is now over four months old and it clearly shows some  of biological clock at work. The mould exhibits some form a periodicity, not unlike the rings that we might find when a tree is cut down, but the fungal rings here develop over a much shorter time period. I can vary the “tick” of the clock by changing the temperature as evidenced by the larger outer ring.
