Intersterility groups in the Pleurotus ostreatus complex from the continental United States and adjacent Canada

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Mating compatibility studies using strains from 17 North American collections in the Pleurotus ostreatus complex reveal three intersterile species of oyster mushrooms. All three species differ from one another in morphology, growth characteristics, geographic distributions, and host ranges. Other than mating compatibility tests, however, no single type of character was completely reliable for distinguishing these species. -from Authors
