The economic importance of fungi is increased by the “edible” mushrooms, a small number of which belong to the class of ascomycetes (such as truffles) and to the class of basidiomycetes.
This class includes most of the mushrooms that grow in our woods and that are in great demand as food (boletus edulis, royal agaric, field mushroom, puffball), as well as the toxic species, such as, for instance, amanitas. Cultivated mushrooms have become important for the food industry.
If you want to know about mushroom nutrients, have a look at graphs and charts, while if you want to have a look at some farmed mushrooms, refer to the photo album.
