Introduction to Mushroom Science : (Systematics)
by T. N. Kaul
1997-04-01
Introduction to Mushroom Science : (Systematics) List Price: $54.90
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.
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.
Will be of interest to students of botany and to mushroom cultivators.

Mycology in Sustainable Development: Expanding Concepts, Vanishing Borders
by Mary Egdahl Palm, Ignacio H. Chapela
1997-03-01
Mycology in Sustainable Development: Expanding Concepts, Vanishing Borders List Price: $40.00
Our Price: $40.00
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.

Mushroom Cultivation - with Special Emphasis on Appropriate Techniques for Developing Countries
by Peter Oei
1996-01-01
Mushroom Cultivation - with Special Emphasis on Appropriate Techniques for Developing Countries 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.

Science and Cultivation of Edible Fungi : Proceeding of the 14th International Congress on the Science and Cultivation of Edible Fungi/Oxford/17-22 se
by T. J. Elliott (Editor)

Science and Cultivation of Edible Fungi : Proceeding of the 14th International Congress on the Science and Cultivation of Edible Fungi/Oxford/17-22 se List Price: $320.00
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 Preservation and Maintenance of Living Fungi (Imi Technical Handbooks, No 2)
by D. Smith, A.H.S. Onions
1994-08-01
The Preservation and Maintenance of Living Fungi (Imi Technical Handbooks, No 2) List Price: $50.00
The second edition of this book has been extended to include new information and devlopments in the preservation of fungi, but maintains the coverage of methodology presented in the first edition published in 1983. The book provides a guide to the selection of suitable preservation procedures, information on the growth and maintenance of fungi, and the background to manage a collection of microorganisms both safely and effectively. The methods described are those in operation or experimented upon at the International Mycological Institute, and cover both simple and complex techniques. These methods are of use in all situations where living cultures of fungi are required, whether in teaching and research or in industry.
