Abstract in Inoculum
- CONTENTS: The second two publications summarize or augment
material presented in the first, a US government handbook that provides
an in-depth look of what is currently known about chanterelles,
globally renowned as one of the best edible forest mushrooms with an
international commercial value that may exceed a billion dollars
annually. Chanterelles are described in the broad sense and North
American species and their place among chanterelle species in the world
are discussed. Also treated are international markets for chanterelles,
their biology, physiology, and ecology, reasons for declining production
in parts of Europe and efforts to cultivate them. Pacific Northwest
species and described in detail include Cantharellus cibarius var.
roseocanus (rainbow chanterelle), C. formosus (Pacific golden
chanterelle — and Oregon State Mushroom), C. subalbidus (white
chanterelle), Craterellus fallax (horn of plenty), Cr. neotubaeformis
nom. prov. (winter craterelle), Gomphus clavatus (pig’s ear gomphus),
and Polyozellus multiplex (blue chanterelle). Color photographs and a
key to chanterelles and look-alikes accompany the descriptions. Regional
forest management issues, recent studies, and future research and
monitoring needed to sustain this prized resource are also discussed. [pdf file]
