Title: Study on the spore pattern in basidium of Volvariella volvacea
Author: Shuxian Li & Shu-Ting Chang
The straw mushroom, Volvariella volvacea, is an important edible fungus of the tropics and sub tropics. Results from scanning electron microscopic examination of the hymenium show that most of the mature basidia are tetrasporic or with 4 sterigmata. However, different spore patterns on basidium were also found. The possible sources of variation in this primary homothallic fungus will be discussed.Please login to download the PDF for this proceeding.
