Molecular phylogenetics and optimization of growth conditions of indigenous edible and therapeutically significant Pleurotus floridanus from Pakistan

Poor agricultural practices and unavailability of nutritious food have developed a need to look for some non-conventional way of food production. Mushrooms and their cultivation are the best

Nutrient Content of Pleurotus pulmonarius (Fr.) Quel. Grown on Some Local Lignocellulosic Wastes

The aim of study as to determine the effects of some composts on the nutritional value of Pleurotus pulmonarius (Fr.) Quel. The energy, dry matter, moisture, crude protein, fat, ash, organic matter,

Improving white oyster mushroom productivity by biogas sludge and its potential as functional foods

White oyster mushroom (Pleurotus florida) is widely consumed by Indonesian people in daily life. It contains high nutrients, especially its protein content. Protein can be generated from meat but it

Diversity of Lenizites from the forest of Jalgaon district (Maharashtra), India.

The present paper deals with the three species of Lenizites from the forest of Jalgaon Districts (Maharashtra), which are reported for the first time from Satpuda range of JalGAon district.


This research aims to construct the monokaryon collection of Pleurotus spp.

Measuring the Electronic Properties of DNA-Specific Schottky Diodes Towards Detecting and Identifying Basidiomycetes DNA

This work demonstrates a novel method of DNA-based identification of basidiomycetes using current-voltage (I-V) profiles obtained from DNA-specific Schottky barrier diodes and believes that this simple, low-cost and practical method could be useful towards identifying and detecting DNA in biotechnology and pathology.

Species clarification of oyster mushrooms in China and their DNA barcoding

Molecular identification of the species complex based on sequences of the internal transcribed spacer region (ITS), translation elongation factor 1-α (TEF1), and two genes that encode subunits of RNA polymerase II (RPB1 and RPB2) indicated thatRPB2 was the most promising candidate segment of DNA barcode for the P. ostreatus species complex.

Mushroom diversity of Konkan region of Maharashtra, India

The forays conducted in the diverse habitats of the Konkan region of Maharashtra for four consecutive monsoon seasons during 2008–2012, revealed the occurrence of 29 mushrooms which belonged to the family Agaricaceae, Lyophyllaceae, Pleurotaceae, Hygrophoraceae, Marasmiaceae and Tricholomataceae.



The Genus Auricularia

Speciation in "Pleurotus"

The gradual genetic isolation which precedes speciation can be readily observed in the genus Pleurotus. Strains of P. ostreatus originating from different parts of the world and growing on differen...

Comparative Morphology, Compatibility, And Interfertility of Auricularia Cornea, A. Polytricha, and A. Tenuis

It is concluded that the three species studied are synonymous and that Auricularia cornea is the correct name, and microscopic studies of tissue zones in basidiocarp sections were found to be more variable than most published accounts.

Enzymes of strains of Pleurotus species (Basidiomycetes) compared by electrophoresis

Four kinds of electrophoresis were used to characterize enzymes in 11 isolates from six species in the genus Pleurotus, and the isolates were reasonably grouped as species.

Pleurotus (Agaricales) in India, Nepal and Pakistan

The Pleurotus species of the Indian subcontinent may be divided conveniently into two groups according to their spore size, those with small spores, 6-9 pm long, which are more characteristic of the tropical-subtropical species and those with spores over Io 0Lm in length, which is more typical of the North temperate flora and confined to the Himalayan localities.

The genus Pleurotus as an aid for understanding the concept of species in Basidiomycetes
