Quick Overview

IK Biology of Indian Morels: 2016 Edition

The morels is one of the most delicious and costliest wild edible mushrooms of the world. During the last century significant advances have been made in the study of morel biology with the sole aim of artificial cultivation. But all efforts to domesticate them have not been wholly fruitful. The book is an attempt to compile all the relevant information on morel biology so that more interest in morel research is stimulated ultimately paving the way for cultivation. The monograph contains 14 chapters; each chapter is devoted to and provides original information and observations on various aspects of morel biology. It begins with an overview of morel biology followed by the life cycle pattern, classical and molecular systematic treatment, ecology, physiology, mycorrhizal and rhizomorphospheric relationships, nutritive and nutraceutical profile, observations and ethno-mycological and sociobiological impact, cytology of ascus development and the culinary aspects of morel consumption. The objective is to offer a detailed account of different aspects of morel biology and biodiversity. All the chapters are documented with tables, figures and original color photographs.
