Comments P.9 right column bottom paragraph: "Fungi represent 10–20% of the rumen microbiota (BNID 117089), [investigators] found that the great majority of the fungal species (81.9%) belonged to anaerobic fungi (Neocallimastigomycota) including most of the genera described so far in ruminants (primary source)."
