Environmental dangers of specie transplant?
    #1812327 - 08/14/03 04:55 AM (14 years, 6 months ago)

What dangers are there when growing a species outdoors that is not native to that region, like Marasmiuis oreades for example.

Is that ecologicaly bad ju-ju?

Actually, it's very easy to isolate a super producing sclerotia strain.

Follow the strain isolation technique on Let's Grow Mushrooms, and then select sectors early which are brown in color.  By the second or third transfer, you'll see stones developing, and this is only about 1 month after the original swipe of spores on agar.

Now, take each stone and move it to a new dish.  Soon, the mycelium will grow out and you'll see fresh stones developing, and if they're good strains, the sclerotia is forming long before the mycelium reaches the edge of the plate.  Pick strains which form four or five stones within two weeks and use these for your grain masters.

There is always the possibility that the non-native species could be an agressive invader and end up pushing some native species out of the area.

This would only be natural, though, as humans are a natural part of Earth's ecosystem and therefore have an effect on it with the things they do.

Try to avoid known pathogens

Like Armillaria (Honey fungus) or Ganoderma (Reishi)
The former Kills live trees and although it is an entirely essential part of healthy forests where it comes from, even there it is not 'in balance', it just runs out of saplings to kill and the forest is spaced out at distances it cant cross (spreads by rhizomorphs and rarely by spores). It is a major killer of garden trees shrubs and woody plants as well as a major concern for foresters. Its edible but not good enouh to warrant the damage it can do.
Ganoderma invades dead and dying tissue and causes a rot of the heartwood so the tree is useless as timber. It may causea rot of the supporting roots too so the tree can come down on a house if this is in suburbia - anyone you dont like?

Species that thrive around human habitatation - mulch beds, gardens, lawns parks etc probably be Ok. they may even benefit the environment by using a food source no other fungi can.

A quick google search on the species should bring up any concerns

Words like Parasite, white rot, brown rot, canker are generally bad though shiitake is one of those and it seems OK
