Isolierung, Strukturaufklärung und Untersuchungen zur Biosynthese von Sekundärmetaboliten aus Physarum polycephalum (Myxomycetes) und Pentapora fascialis (Bryozoa), Dissertation von Sophie Eisenbarth, LMU München

Physarum polycephalum, also referred as slime molds, belongs to the supergroup Amoebozoa, phylum Mycetozoa, and class Myxogastria. P. polycephalum, often referred to as the “many-headed slime,” is a slime mold that inhabits shady, cool, moist areas, such as decaying leaves and logs. It is sensitive to light; in particular, light can repel the slime mold and be a factor in triggering spore growth.
