Introducing a new species?
    #1997428 - 10/10/03 03:48 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

I know this may be a bit of a far-out idea, but I was wondering if it is possible to introduce a new species of shrooms to an island. Here in Newfoundland we don't have much of a selection (liberty caps and... more liberty caps). Would it be possible to determine what species of mushrooms grew in a certain climate, on a certain substrate, etc, and introduce it? One could take enough spore syringes (maybe more like a spore fire-hose) and spread the solution over appropriate areas.

Ideas?

I think you would be better off trying to innoculate cow patties rather than horse manure. It is far more difficult to grow in horse manure because it needs to go through five or six rains to flush out the urea and other chemicals that may prevent germination.

i didnt know that it woud actually work, introducing spores to cows, through food or drinking water, i would think you would have to innoculate the cowshit manually?

i don't think introducing new spieces is a good idea the mushrooms that are there are for a reason and mother nature had some milion years for giving harmony between spieces animals trees and stuuf you cannot predict what changes an introduction of a new spieces will bring i think it's really a stupid idea it has happened before and it's possible in a long time that a lot of bad thinks will happend to the enviropment we are not athorized to do such thinks to nature only because we want to trip off by onother shroom than liberty caps

i disagree,this is my planet and i say unto you,"go forth and populate the earth with shrooms"

ps: i hope you don't drink water or eat bread and veges cause most of those things were introduced to new environments for the better of mankind

yeah, its plain simple:darwin's theorie of natural selection says we are there to dictate nature , if we can. Apes use tools to for example. They rip of barks of trees , and termites eat trees till they die.  They are all doing somethign bad, but we say it's natural.
So what I want to say is: It is indifferent what we do, but just the fact the we are doing it, is natural.
(A bit far fetched with darwin, but what the hell :wink:  )
So: Spawn that Island! (Id start small,think of Pinky and Brain. They always want to conquer the whole world at once, and never manage! Begin with you local woods, and if there are naturally growing shrooms there in a decade, then begin to think bigger!)

Your best bet would probably be Panaolus subbalteatus.

Just go for a cosmopolitan mulch community species like P cyanescens or relatives
Its not going to worry the local flora as they specifically like Human habitats not pristine wilderness
