Cover Story (view full-size image): Underground ecosystems are one of the most inhospitable places for microorganism development. Therefore, any organic matter located in these areas can stimulate fungal growth. Our research object is evidence of these observations. Paleolithic bones of cave bear (Ursus spelaeus) were exhibited for tourists in the Niedźwiedzia Cave, and mycelium growth was visible on their surface. Our studies allowed us to identify fungal species colonizing the bones and to determine susceptibility profiles to three commercially available fungicidal preparations. We also prepared recommendations that allowed us to resolve a pressing problem and effectively preserve priceless museum objects for the future. View this paper
