Cultural Characteristics of Korean Ectomycorrhizal Fungi

한국산 외생균근균의 배양 특성


Many ectomycorrhizal fungi provide delicious foods for humans as symbiotic fungi forming ectomycorrhizas on roots of trees. Korea Forest Research Institute (KFRI) is focused on studying the pure culture, conservation, and fundamental characteristics of ectomycorrhizal fungi as well as their artificial cultivation. In this review, we described the cultural characteristics of many ectomycorrhizal fungi that are preserved in the cold room of KFRI. The aim of this article is to provide basic information that will be useful in investigating good forest resources for any researchers who are interested in this topic.
