Bioconversion of agricultural lignocellulosic wastes through the cultivation of the edible mushrooms Agrocybe aegerita, Volvariella volvacea and Pleurotus spp.
Ten selected wild and commercial strains of Pleurotus ostreatus,Pleurotus eryngii,Pleurotus pulmonarius, Agrocybe aegerita andVolvariella volvacea were cultivated on three agricultural wastes, i.e.Expand
A pluralistic approach in the study of Pleurotus species with emphasis on compatibility and physiology of the European morphotaxa
The anatomical, physiological, ecological and cultural characters of 11 Pleurotus morphotaxa reported to occur in Europe are described in detail and compared with the outcome of a pairing-analysisExpand
Genetic polymorphism and taxonomic infrastructure of the Pleurotus eryngii species-complex as determined by RAPD analysis, isozyme profiles and ecomorphological characters.
The Pleurotus eryngii species-complex includes populations of choice edible mushrooms, growing in the greater Mediterranean area in close association with different genera of plants of the familyExpand
Olivibacter sitiensis gen. nov., sp. nov., isolated from alkaline olive-oil mill wastes in the region of Sitia, Crete.
A novel, Gram-negative, non-motile, non-sporulating, rod-shaped bacterium isolated from a viscous two-phase olive-oil mill waste ('alpeorujo') is described. The strain, designated AW-6T, is anExpand
Mycelium growth kinetics and optimal temperature conditions for the cultivation of edible mushroom species on lignocellulosic substrates
The influence of environmental parameters on mycelial linear growth ofPleurotus ostreatus, P. eryngii, P. pulmonarius, Agrocybe aegerita, Lentinula edodes, Volvariella volvacea andAuriculariaExpand
Genetic Relatedness Among Dioecious Ficus carica L. cultivars by Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA Analysis, and Evaluation of Agronomic and Morphological Characters
A collection of 64 fig (Ficus carica L.) accessions was characterized through the use of RAPD markers, and results were evaluated in conjunction with morphological and agronomical characters, inExpand
Role of ethylene in the protection of tomato plants against soil-borne fungal pathogens conferred by an endophytic Fusarium solani strain.
An endophytic fungal isolate (Fs-K), identified as a Fusarium solani strain, was obtained from root tissues of tomato plants grown on a compost which suppressed soil and foliar pathogens. Strain Fs-KExpand
Ecophysiology and molecular phylogeny of bacteria isolated from alkaline two-phase olive mill wastes.
The use of two-phase centrifugal decanters has been widely adopted in the olive oil extraction industry in order to reduce the huge quantities of wastewaters produced during the traditionalExpand
Correlation of the properties of several lignocellulosic substrates to the crop performance of the shiitake mushroom Lentinula edodes
Two selected Lentinula edodes strains (S4080 and SIEF0231) were cultivated on oak-wood sawdust (OS), wheat straw (WS) and corn-cobs (CC) substrates in order to examine the influence of those residuesExpand
Suppression of soil-borne pathogens of tomato by composts derived from agro-industrial wastes abundant in Mediterranean regions
We studied nine composts derived from wastes and by-products of the olive oil, wine, and Agaricus mushroom agro-industries. They were mixed with peat at 1:3 w w−1 ratios and comparatively evaluatedExpand
