Field Guide to Mushrooms -Contest Winner
Posted by Psynaut on Wednesday, January 18 @ 05:06:28 EST (430 reads)

General tnshroomin writes "I just recieved my copy of Field Guide to Mushrooms from the club, thanks Paul. I have a copy of the first edition of Field Book of Common Gilled Mushrooms by William S. Thomas, but this book beats it hands down. I would love to see someone do MIlvaine's book "One Thousand American Fungi" like Marie Heerkens did Thomas's book. Thanks again Paul, it is a beautiful book that I will treasure forever.

Hunting: Island's a dream for mushroom hunters

Hunting Erin Fletcher The Star

The next time you got out for a walk in the woods, look down. You may be stepping on a great meal.

Vancouver Island is home to more than 2,000 mushroom species and many of the more common ones are delicious sauteed in butter and garlic.

But when it comes to mushroom hunting, the challenge is not in the hunt but in knowing which ones are edible and which ones will give your intestines a terrible turn.

Last week a group of eager mushroom hunters gathered at Wildwood, a Land Conservancy forest in Yellowpoint, to learn how to identify and cook the delicate fungus we are all so fond of. Rob Countess, owner of Vancouver Island Nature Exploration, an eco-tourism company based out of Port Hardy, hosted the one-day workshop.

General: Lecturer Praises Mushroom Meds

General by Samira Chandwani Sun Staff Writer

The next time you peruse the produce aisles in your local supermarket, you may want to take another look at those brown, woodsy portabellas or those small, white button-like mushrooms. If mycologists, perhaps more aptly termed “mushroom aficionados,” are right, these oft-forgotten, lowly fungi may actually be on the cutting edge of cancer treatment, retroviral therapies and combating biological warfare. Scientists like Paul Stamets have spent years researching the medical and environmental benefits and features of mycelia; the medical community and even the U.S. government have just started to realize that mushrooms are a treasure trove. Stamets, designated this year to be a Cornell lecturer, gave a talk yesterday afternoon on the role of the mushroom in the greater scheme of the biosphere.

Prof. Kathy Hodge, plant pathology, who specializes in mycology, described Stamets as “a champion of mushrooms, a guru, even … known for his innovative edge.”

General: The truth about mushrooms in your lawn
Posted by psynaut on Thursday, November 17 @ 11:32:18 EST (604 reads)

General Fall rains and cooler temperatures often bring mushrooms to lawns and gardens, but you don’t need to be alarmed. Mushrooms are actually the reproductive structures of fungi. If your property has mushrooms, it may indicate that your soil is healthy and a good place for trees and other plants to grow.

Fungi and bacteria play an integral role on earth. They break down complex organic compounds including proteins, carbohydrates and fats into their most basic elements. These basic compounds of life can be used by other generations of organisms. Plants rely on soil fungi and bacteria to digest these nutrients for them. In return, they feed the soil organisms with the sugars they make via photosynthesis.

Underground, below the mushrooms popping up on your lawn, are thread-like networks called hyphae. Some of these hyphae attach to plant roots, creating thread-like extensions that reach far into the soil, increasing the surface area of the plant roots up to 1,000 times. The fungal hyphae and the plant roots working together are called mycorrhizae. These intricate webs of hyphal filaments capture water and minerals and deliver them to plant roots via the mycorrhizae.
