Hericium is an edible, highly sought after wood rotting fungus of temperate deciduous forests. There is little or no commercial forest production on wood substrates, unlike shiitake for which there is considerable commercial demand. There are no detailed descriptions of production practices, and very few commercially available strains. This study compared yield of mushrooms from four different strains—one commercial, Hericium erinaceus and three strains of H. americanum isolated locally…

The effect of different fruiting temperatures on the yield and nutritional parameters of some wild and hybrid Hericium isolates
TLDR
It is demonstrated that fruiting temperature is an important factor on yield parameters, protein and ash contents of Hericium spp.
Fruitbody production of Hericium erinaceus and its distribution in Slovakia.
TLDR
Of the studied log characteristics, H. erinaceus showed preference for smaller log sizes, and the fruitbodies were observed for five continual years in the same section of a living oak tree trunk.
Biology, cultivation, and medicinal functions of the mushroom Hericium erinaceum
TLDR
Information is summarized about the development of mycelium, the best conditions for cultivation of fruitbodies, bioactive substances and their use in medicine, as well as promising results have been reported in clinical trials and case reports about the human treatment.

Abstract The rare fungus Hericium erinaceus (Bull.) Pers. was collected from temperate forests in northwestern Tunisia and described for the first time in Africa. In this paper, we report data about
MEDICINAL PROPERTIES OF HERICIUM ERINACEUS
Medicinal mushrooms have become an attractive topic due to their bioactive compounds potentially useful for therapeutic use. Among the growing popularity of medicinal mushrooms is Hericium erinaceus.
Producers, production, marketing, and sales of non-timber forest products in the United States: a review and synthesis
Non-timber forest products (NTFPs) are derived from natural populations of plants or fungi, or farmed in forests. Harvesters and producers often benefit from NTFPs by selling them to generate income.

AN EVALUATION OF LOCAL ISOLATES OF Hericium americanum FOR USE IN MUSHROOM PRODUCTION
TLDR
The use of wild collected isolates of Hericium americanum (lion’s mane) in the commercial production of mushrooms was investigated and it was found that the fastest growth was displayed by some of the wild isolates at each temperature, while mushrooms produced by the wild isolate were never better than the commercial isolate.
Utilization of new naturally occurring strains and supplementation to improve the biological efficiency of the edible mushroom Agrocybe cylindracea
TLDR
The results show the importance of searching for new naturally occurring strains in combination with supplemented wheat straw substrate for raising yields in A. cylindracea cultivation.

Effect of Culinary-Medicinal Lion's Mane Mushroom, Hericium erinaceus (Bull.: Fr.) Pers. (Aphyllophoromycetideae), on Ethanol-Induced Gastric Ulcers in Rats
TLDR
Overall, rats pretreated with only distilled water suffered extensive hemorrhagic gastric mucosa lesions, whereas pretreatment with H. erinaceus or omeprazole reduced ulceration, with better cytoprotection observed in ratspretreated with omepazole.

TLDR
The present review analyzes the pecularities of polysaccharides derived from fruiting bodies and cultured mycelium in selected examples of medicinal mushrooms and concludes that high molecular weight glucans appear to be more effective than those of low molecular weight.
