- Lignin is natural cement. Lignin is a complex three-dimensional substance
that is like a natural "cement". Lignin’s are complex three-dimensional
polymers of phenol propane units.
Some mycorrhizae grow between old, dead leaves, and in brown-rotted wood suggesting that the fungi may be able to digest lignin. When lots of lignin came in trees, lots of dinosaurs left the earth.
