A decay of the "brown rot" type, caused by specialized fungi capable of conducting moisture from an available source and extending their attack to wood previously too dry to decay. Found chiefly in buildings. The term is open to the misinterpretation that wood will rot when dry, which is not true.
Brown, crumbling look of wood, which is decaying due to fungi. Rather than dry, this type of deterioration occurs when wood is subjected to a constant source of moisture, such as studs, when there is a leak
Fungal decay of seasoned wood.
The decaying or deterioration of wood, fungus infected wood.
Decay of timber due to the fungus Serpula Lacrymans. Usually considered to the most serious timber decay.
Deterioration of the rug pile and foundation over the years when it becomes dry and brittle. Also caused by liquids or moisture remaining on a rug for an extended time causing the rug to rot.
A reddish fungus that afflicts wooden antique chairs and other pieces of furniture that has been stored in wet conditions. It causes wood to become weakened and unsightly. The affected area will shed brownish dust and will quickly spread over an entire piece if unchecked.
A decay affecting dry timber, caused by a fungus growth.

dry crumbling decay in wood caused by various fungi.
A type of brown rot decay caused by the basidiomycete Serpula lacrimans .
A fungus that attacks structural and joinery timbers, often with devastating results. Can flourish in moist, unventilated areas.
Wood decay caused by a fungus that consumes the cellulose portion of the wood, leaving a soft skeleton that readily crumbles to a powder. Wood structures that are inadequately ventilated and constantly exposed to moisture are especially vulnerable to dry rot.
Wood rot caused by certain fungi. Dry rot can result from condensation build-up, roof leaks that go untended, or from other problems. Dry rot will not remain localized. It can spread and damage any lumber touching the affected area.
Sometimes called "fungal wood rot", dry rot is a fungus that can eat away at wood fibers, turning them to powder. Dry rot thrives in moist and damp conditions.
A fungal decay that causes wood to become brittle and crumble.
A fungal disease which attacks seasoned timbers, often causing the wood to be reduced to a dry, crumbly texture and to collapse.
Fungal timber decay occurring in poorly-ventilated buildings, resulting in cracking and powdering of wood.
Decay from fungi that causes wood to become brittle and crumble to powder.
A term loosely applied to dry, crumbly, decomposed wood. This term is actually a misnomer, because all wood decay fungi require considerable moisture to flourish and consume wood.
The roots and fruits disintegrate because of fungi without the evidence of fluids. Soft rot is soft, oozing and the result of bacterial infection.
After many years the rug becomes dry and brittle, or liquids or moisture on a rug for an extended time can cause the rug to become dry rot.

A fungal decay that causes lumber to crumble.
Is identified by loss of strength, generally in the backing, causing the material to break or tear easily. Associated with growth of bacteria and fungus on the back of the rug or carpet.
See Fungal Wood Rot.
A wood fungus that thrives in damp conditions and turns wood fibers into powder.
Dry rot is an almost oxymoronic term given to the decay of a substance without the presence of water. The term has been applied to the decay of timber in timbers by specific fungus, the decay of crop plants by fungi and the deterioration of rubber. In addition, the term can be used as a metaphor for grave underlying problems within a large organization (such as political corruption in government or low morale in the armed forces) that show no symptoms until a sudden, catastrophic failure.
