Conk In the African American Community of the early 20th century, the conk hairstyle served as a rite of passage from adolescence into adulthood for males. Because of the pain involved in the process, and the possibility of chemical burns and permanent scarring, the conk represented masculinity and virility within the community.
Ganoderma brownii The aforementioned pore bruising has led to its common name, "artist's conk."
Mehmet Hulusi Conk Mehmet Hulusi Conk (1881; Smyrna (Izmir), Aidin Vilayet - January 10, 1950; ?) was an officer of the Ottoman Army and the Turkish Army.
Conk Many African American studies scholars, and Malcolm X, a conk enthusiast in his youth, have held that the conk represents a darker motif of the African American community as well: the degradation of self in favor of "white" traits. The notion that a straighter hair is superior, and the lengths African Americans went through to attain it, elucidates an issue that was endemic as the black community struggled to gain a foothold in mainstream America.
Ganoderma applanatum Ganoderma applanatum (the artist's bracket, artist's conk or bear bread) is a bracket fungus with a cosmopolitan distribution.

Amanda Conk Best House It was built for Amanda James Conk Best, a polygamous wife of Alfred Best, and is important as an unusual example for its time and place, as a large Queen Anne style house built out in rural Salt Lake County.
Inonotus obliquus In England and Canada, it is known as the sterile conk trunk rot of birch, which refers to the fruiting bodies growing under the outer layers of wood surrounding the sterile conk once the tree is dead, to spread the spores. In France, it is called the "carie blanche spongieuse de bouleau" (spongy white birch tree rot), and in Germany it is known as "Schiefer Schillerporling" (oblique "Inonotus"). The Dutch name is" berkenweerschijnzwam" (birch glow mushroom).
Conk The conk is all but extinct as a hairstyle among African-American men today, although more mildly relaxed hairstyles such as the Jheri curl and the S-curl were popular during the 1980s and 1990s. While not involving the use of chemical relaxers, the "wave" style, commonly worn by young African-American men and teens in the 2000s may be considered to be a new version of the conk, in that the natural hair is waved through use of pomades and pressing flattened curls [formed] into place using a do rag.
Appianoporites The genus is known only from the single holotype, a partial bracket fungus fruiting body, or conk. The specimen, AW 104 D top, is currently residing in the collections housed by the Royal British Columbia Museum, Victoria. The specimen was collected south of the Campbell River on the eastern shore of Vancouver Island. The partial conk was preserved in a calcareous nodule recovered from a silty mudstone matrix. The nodules formed in a shallow marine environment along with abundant plant material.
Fomitopsis pinicola Fomitopsis pinicola, is a stem decay fungus. Its conk (fruit body), commonly known as the red-belt conk, is a polypore fungus of the genus "Fomitopsis". The species is common throughout the temperate Northern Hemisphere. It is a decay fungus that serves as a small-scale disturbance agent in coastal rainforest ecosystems. It influences stand structure and succession in temperate rainforests. It performs essential nutrient cycling functions in forests.

The specimen was collected in Apple Bay, near Quatsino Sound on the northwestern shore of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. The partial conk was preserved in a calcareous nodule recovered from a Greywacke sandstone matrix equivalent in age to the Longarm Formation. The nodules formed in a shallow marine environment along with abundant plant material.
Afro-textured hair During the 1930s, conking (vividly described in "The Autobiography of Malcolm X") became an innovative method in the U.S. for Black men to straighten their kinky hair. Women at that time tended either to wear wigs, or to hot-comb their hair (rather than conk it) in order to temporarily mimic a straight style without permanently altering the natural curl pattern. Popular until the 1960s, the conk hair style was achieved through the application of a painful lye, egg and potato mixture that was toxic and immediately burned the scalp.
