Cellulolytic fungi (Trichoderma viride, basidiomycetes) have been employed with commercial amylases to enhance the saccharification of cassava starch; the hydrolysate served as a better substrate for the alcoholic fermentation by yeast
Differences in discharge distance among the basidiomycetes might, therefore, have evolved via adaptive changes in these features of spore architecture.
In gilled mushrooms, for example, discharge distances of In this study, we report high-speed video analysis of spore discharge in selected basidiomycetes ranging from yeasts to wood-decay fungi with poroid fruiting bodies.
