Abstract

Mushroom resources have been exploited in most developed economies because of their huge agro-industrial, medicinal and commercial benefits. Nigerians utilized mushroom-forming fungi only for food and folk medicine for many decades. Auricularia auricular Judae check for this species in other resources (Bull.) Quél, Lentinus squarrosulus check for this species in other resources Mont., Pleurotus tuberregium check for this species in other resources (Fr.) Singer and Volvariella volvacea check for this species in other resources (Bull.) Singer was some of the common edible mushrooms that were successfully cultivated in Nigeria on small-scale basis. The mushroom resources in Nigeria are grossly under-studied and their attractive potentials under-exploited for addressing economic and industrial development. Resourceful biotechnological approach in the application of mushrooms in agriculture, medicine, industry and environment is inchoate and uncommon in the country. @ JASEM
