Mushroom, the conspicuous umbrella-shaped fruiting body (sporophore) of certain fungi, typically of the order Agaricales in the phylum Basidiomycota but also of some other groups.
Agaricus bisporus is an edible mushroom. It also belongs to the division Basidiomycetes of kingdom Fungi. Hence the correct option is C.
Agaricus is a genus of mushrooms consist of both edible and poisonous species, with possibly over 300 members worldwide. The dominant and common variety of edible mushroom includes Agaricus bisporus and Agaricus campestris.
Agaricus mushroom is used for cancer, type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, “hardening of the arteries” (arteriosclerosis), ongoing liver disease, bloodstream disorders, and digestive problems. Other uses include prevention of heart disease, weakened bones (osteoporosis), and stomach ulcers.
The button mushroom, Agaricus bisporus (Lange) Imbach, the most common cultivated mushroom, is susceptible to a wide range of virus, bacterial, and fungal diseases. However, only some diseases were studied for the mechanisms involved in the host-microorganism interaction.
Fungus, plural fungi, any of about 144,000 known species of organisms of the kingdom Fungi, which includes the yeasts, rusts, smuts, mildews, molds, and mushrooms. There are also many funguslike organisms, including slime molds and oomycetes (water molds), that do not belong to kingdom Fungi but are often called fungi.
Fungi are a group of living organisms which are classified in their own kingdom. This means they are not animals, plants, or bacteria. Unlike bacteria, which have simple prokaryotic cells, fungi have complex eukaryotic cells like animals and plants.
Fungi are usually classified in four divisions: the Chytridiomycota ( chytrids ), Zygomycota ( bread molds ), Ascomycota (yeasts and sac fungi ), and the Basidiomycota ( club fungi ). Placement into a division is based on the way in which the fungus reproduces sexually.
Albugo – Edible mushroom. Claviceps – Parasitic fungus
They reproduce vegetatively via conjugation. (iv) Agaricus belongs to Basidiomycetes (where karyogamy and meiosis occur). They contain well developed filaments, branched and septate mycelium. They are saprophytic but not parasitic.
t the mushroom have any green leaves? the mushroom does not have green leabes because it does not have chlorphyll. Where are the spores of a mushroom produced? They are produced in the gills of the mushroom?
These include the truffles (Tuber spp.), matsutake (Tricholoma spp.) and porcini or cèpes (Boletus edulis). Their biology and ecology have been studied in some detail – a marked contrast to the many other wild edible fungi used around the world.
It appears that some people can eat this mushroom without ill effects, but it can cause serious gastric problems. It is indigestible and gives rise to symptoms of sweating, flushing, and severe stomach cramps. Of those who gather Agaricus -style mushrooms, about 50% of the cases of poisoning are from this species.
Fermentation of sugars by yeast is the oldest application in the making of bread, beer and wine.
