Fungi and Lignin[edit]

There is no evidence to suggest that fungi degrade lignin in the rumen. While there are some fungi that can break down lignin, this process is aerobic, and could not occur in the rumen. Further, and perhaps more worryingly, this article is completely innocent of any references, while there are many references to support many statements made. Unfortunately, I do not know how to insert references, or i would do it myself. Dalekmikey 23:18, 26 November 2006 (UTC)

oops, 9 years later and no response to you ? I d say, just list them here! Dalekmikey, someone will insert them.
The article is practically unverifiable, the 3 textbooks mentioned at the end notwithstanding, because there are no inline citations.--Wuerzele (talk) 21:03, 14 January 2015 (UTC)
