Is Bracket Fungus Poisonous

There is a growth I think called Bracket Fungus on a the trunk of a Sycamore tree. Is this fungus poisonous to humans?

ANSWERS

Some old herbals list bracket fungi as useful in treating certain diseases; however, more modern sources list them as poisonous. Be that as it may, they are certainly not edible. But if you mean, can you be poisoned by handling or brushing agains one, I wouldn't think so. Gloves are recommended if you're planning to mess with one, however.

I Am Looking for Shelf Fungus

Are there better places to locate shelf fungus (i.e. swampy area or dry)? If there is a tree with fungus, is it likely that more would be near. Is there any special handling procedures?
