(**) Spalting is any form of wood coloration caused by fungi. Dark dotting, winding lines and thin streaks of red, brown and black are known as Zone Lines. This type of spalting does not occur due to any specific type of fungus, but is instead an interaction zone in which different fungi have erected barriers to protect their resources. They can also be caused by a single fungus delineating itself.
