A great book to use along with <a href="">The Mushroom Cultivator : A Practical Guide to Growing Mushrooms at Home</a>.
The mushrooms belong to a group of living organisms called fungi and have attracted increasing attention during the recent times as a source of nurtritious and flavourful food with medicinal or tonic attributes and a useful role in environmental protection. Their scientific study, therefore, is of great importance. <br> This book, the first of two volumes, deals mainly with their enumeration, taxonomy, and distribution. It is divided into two main parts-first part deals with biological features of fungi in general and the second part introduces the readers to a systematic study of the group called mushrooms, detailing their morphological features, collection methods, and identification procedures. <br> Will be of interest to students of botany and to mushroom cultivators.
This book contains the proceedings of The Mycology in Sustainable Development Workshop in 14 chapters organized by subject. Four chapters discuss the management of the Pine mushroom "matsutake" (Tricholoma magnivelare) as a model for the emergence and management of non-timber forest products. The value of sustainably harvesting "matsutake" could exceed the value of logging trees in some parts of North America. Three chapters provide an overview of the monitoring and inventory of fungal biological diversity, in order to determine methods for successful sustainable development in each North American country. In the section entitled Environmentally Friendly Technologies, authors discuss the use of mycorrhizae in land restoration, fungi as biological control agents of weeds, and endophytes as instruments of ecological management. Finally, several authors consider the potential for cultivation of novel fungal products and the use of fungi in pharmaceutical bioprospecting.
The book is a how-to-manual for isolating and sampling fungi. The methods described in this book range from a double transect design for sampling mushrooms and large fungi over an extended period to procedures for isolating fungi from leaf litter and dung. It is a "cookbook" of recommended procedures that would result in locating fungi from most substrates. Many of the techniques described here, although aimed at sampling/isolating fungi in a tropical region, are applicable anywhere. Numerous references are included for isolating and characterizing the resulting fungi.
Genetics and Breeding of Edible Mushrooms is the first book not only to explore the breeding programs for Agaricus bisporus (the button mushroom), but to view the subject in the context of the large range of edible mushrooms which are currently under cultivation worldwide. From the background and general objectives of culture collection and breeding to the genetic systems and molecular biological approaches to breeding, the authors' coverage is in-depth and current, filling a gap which exists in the field.
Covers biology, growing and harvesting methods for most commercially produced mushrooms, with special attention to truffles. Extensive bibliography; black and white and color photos.
Proceedings of the 13th International Congress on [title], held in Dublin, Ireland, September 1991. These two volumes contain the papers which were submitted as oral presentations and posters, and cover nearly all aspects of mushroom science and technology, including basic genetics and physiology, pest and disease control, computer control of environment, shelf-life of mushrooms and improved cultivation techniques. A number of papers deal with the cultivation of species other than the common mushroom, Agaricus bisporus, and there is also a section on the medical aspects of the mushrooms.
The quadrennial International Congress on the Science and Cultivation of Edible Fungi brings together both scientific and commercial aspects of mushroom science and technology. The proceedings of the 14th Congress, held in September 1995, comprise 115 papers that illustrate advances in areas ranging from basic genetics, microbiology, and physiology to composting and crop management. Other topics include casing, diseases and disorders, medicinal uses, molecular characterization, mushroom by-products, pests, and quality. Nearly a fifth of the papers treat genera other than Agaricus.
The two volumes comprising these proceedings include 125 contributions, written by industrial and university-affiliated mycologists, biologists, horticultural researchers, pathologists, food scientists, soil scientists, animal nutritionists, and many others from all over the world. The first volume includes the Congress introductions, foreword, welcome, and three keynote lectures, followed by sections addressing the physiology of edible fungi; development and morphogenesis; genetics and breeding; and substrates. The second volume addresses crop management; pests and diseases; quality control; medically and industrially important edible fungi; environmental aspects of mushroom cultivation; the economics of the industry and market research; and the teaching of mushroom cultivation. It also includes a number of technical sessions addressing cultivation technique of Agaricus, particularly hygiene and farm management; equipment; and spawn, substrate, casing, and cultivation.
This manual provides essential information on how to cultivate more than twelve different species of mushrooms. Mushroom growing involves many steps, from selecting a suitable technique and strain to spawn manufacturing, growing the crop and marketing the final product. The cultivation techniques in this publication have the potential of being successfully applied in developing countries. Growers of exotic mushrooms will also find a wealth of information in this volume.
Miles and Chang have done a great service to all students and aspiring mushroom cultivators with the publication of Mushroom Biology. This small, information dense book covers all aspects of mushroom cultivation, from the biology of mushroom development to the science underlying cultivation. As such, it is the perfect textbook for an upper level undergraduate course specifically focused on edible mushrooms.
This 176-page compendium provides technical information on mushroom diseases, molds, abnormalities, insect pests and pest management, composting, spawning, casing, pasteurization, watering, and controlling carbon dioxide. Illustrations include 45 black-and-white photographs; 15 detailed drawings of microscopic spore structures; 52 color photographs of mushroom diseases, molds, and abnormalities; 24 tables; and 265 graphs, charts, and diagrams.
This well-illustrated book allows anyone with common sense, a clean kitchen, and a closet shelf to grow bumper crops of mushrooms. Besides step-by-step guides to cultivating four species of psilocybin-containing mushrooms, the book offers a wealth of additional information that includes an introduction to mushroom biology, a resource guide for supplies, advice on discreetly integrating psychedelic mushrooms into outdoor gardens, and insights into the traditional use of psilocybin in sacred medicine. Also included are appendices with a summary of all included recipes.
More mushrooms, less pollution! Yes, you heard right: growing more mushrooms may be the best thing we can do to save the environment and mushroom expert Paul Stamets explains how in MYCELIUM RUNNING, a groundbreaking manual for saving the world through mushroom cultivation. The science goes like this: fine filaments of cells called mycelium, the fruit of which are mushrooms, already cover large areas of land around the world. As the mycelium grows, it breaks down plant and animal debris, recycling carbon, nitrogen, and other essential elements in the creation of rich new soil. What Stamets has discovered is that the enzymes and acids that mycelium produces to decompose this debris are superb at breaking apart hydrocarbons—the base structure common to many pollutants. So, for instance, when diesel oil–contaminated soil is inoculated with strains of oyster mycelia, the soil loses its toxicity in just eight weeks. The science is both simple and brilliant, and in MY! CELIUM RUNNING, Stamets discusses the various branches of this exciting new technology, including mycorestoration (biotransforming stripped land), mycofiltration (creating habitat buffers), myco-remediation (healing chemically harmed environments), and mycoforestry (creating truly sustainable forests). Also featuring instruction in the fine art of mushroom cultivation and tips for choosing the appropriate species of fungi for various purposes, MYCELIUM RUNNING is the consummate guide to this newest trend in environmental science.
