Title: Influences of a Wide Range of Bacteria, Actinomycetes and Fungi on Mycelial Growth of Agaricus bisporus (Lange), Sing and the Special Fruiting Requirement of A. Bisporus
Authors: D.C. O’Donoghue-Maguire and J. Philip Ryan
Vegetative mycelium of Agaricus bisporus was shown to be very sensitive to volatiles and diffusâtes of many species of microorganisms. Highly stimulatory and inhibitory effects on growth were obtained and many species has morphogenic influences. The test organisms included bacteria, streptomycetes, ascomycetes, phycomycetes, fungi imperfect! and basidiomycetes. The results are discussed in relation to the external fruiting stimulus (EFS factor) which A. bisporus requires and which is provided by soil organisms.Please login to download the PDF for this proceeding.
