Author: Mihály Vidacs, Viktor Papp, József Szarvas, András Geösel
Species of the Ganoderma genus are well known for its medicinal values. The taxonomical status of this genus is not settled due to the weak morphological identification keys. Samples examined in a study from available “Ganoderma lucidum” products content showed a great variety of different Ganoderma species. For its medical effects G. lucidum is the most researched of the genus, although other members of the genus were also proven to have the biologically active compounds.
