WASHINGTON - Micro scopic" molds that Ingenious ly trap and eat tiny animals may prove valuable to farm ers. The carnivorous fungi look as harmless as the green fuzz. that grows on stale bread, but to their anl mal prey, they are deadly, the National Geographic So ciety says. Though the curious molds thrive In garden composts and forest soil, a microscope is needed to watch them Not even biologists knew about the minute dramas until 1888 when a German scientist observed a mold in the act of trapping and killing' the larvae of a nematode worm. Now, French Investigators have reported that the molds can control sneep nooK- worm, which Is closely re lated to the species that at tacks man. Experiments in dlcate the plants also can check worms Infesting cere als, potatoes, pineapples, and other food plants. Scientists are interested in learning more about the physiological mechanisms by victims. Some plants develop artful, rl.iglike structures at-l tached to rootlike filaments. When a wandering nama- tode happens to stick its head Into one of these traps, the ring inflates to three times its normal size In less than a tenth of a second. me animai is caugnt m a stranglehold. Even If the nematode breaks away from the plant, the ring coes with it. Little by little, the ring pushes fil- frcm the tfirlvclM to produce more ents corpse spores. Charles Drechslcr, of the United States Department of Agriculture, has studied car. nlvorous molds for nearly 30 years. He reports that the prey Includes amoebae, roti fers, crustaceans, even tiny insects such as springtaiis. Attacking live animals is a departure for fungi, whose main job Is disposing of nature's trash.
