About this book

Edible ectomycorrhizal mushrooms (EEMMs) comprise more than 1000 species and are an important food and forest resource. In this volume of Soil Biology, internationally recognized scientists offer their most recent research findings on these beguiling fungi. Topics covered include: complex ecological interactions between plants, EEMMs, and soil organisms; comparative genomics, high-throughput sequencing and modern research tools; genetic selection of fungal strains and techniques for inoculating plants; economic and social considerations surrounding wild collected EEMMs; and practical information concerning soil management and EEMM cultivation. The book will be a useful guide for anyone interested in soil ecology, forestry, or the genetics and cultivation of EEMMs, and provides an extensive knowledge base and inspirations for future studies on these ecologically and economically important fungi.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“The edible ectomycorrhizal mushrooms (EEMMs) is a comprehensive handbook which comprises more than 1000 species and mainly deals with biology, ecology and ethnomycology of EEMMs. … The reader can gain knowledge in various aspects. This book is written in simple language and easy to understand for students and amateurs. … This book is very useful for mycologist, biotechnologist, student and mushroom cultivators. The book contains the ecology, taxonomic and molecular aspects, cultivation and ethnomycology of edible ectomycorrhizal mushrooms.” (Komsit Wisitrassameewong and Kevin D. Hyde, Fungal Diversity, December, 2014)
