GANODERMA APPLANATUM PDF

Many people have seen Ganoderma applanatum at one time or another; it is widely distributed and fairly common—typically seen at the bases of hardwood stumps or on hardwood logs. It is sometimes known as the "artist's fungus," since its white to gray pore surface bruises brown and retains the bruising for years if the mushroom is picked and brought inside. I have seen very intricate and beautiful etchings on Ganoderma applanatum , in craft stores and yard sales. My own attempts at Ganoderma art, however, have not been very beautiful—unless you call abusive woodland notes for my mushrooming buddies "beautiful.

The mushroom on the right was gently scratched to demonstrate this reaction. Ganoderma applanatum is unique among fungi in that it is primarily used by humans as an artistic medium. This large, woody bracket fungus features a mostly flat white pore surface that immediately stains brown when handled. Because of this, the mushroom readily becomes a natural canvas for an artist.

By lightly scratching the pore surface, an artist can produce beautiful sketches without using a pen, pencil, or paint. The pores stop growing once the mushroom is removed from its substrate, so the stains remain on the pore surface. Conks produced by G. Ganoderma applanatum forms large conks, which are fan-shaped polypore mushrooms that grow shelf-like from dead logs.

Conks are also known as bracket mushrooms or shelf mushrooms. The conks produced by G. The new pore surface forms on the bottom of the conk, so you can tell how old the mushroom is by slicing it in half and counting the pore layers. Aside from its large size, Ganoderma applanatum is rather unimpressive in nature. Its pileus surface is mostly flat, matte brown, lumpy, and usually zonate.

Underneath, the mushroom is smooth, bright white, and features tiny pores per millimeter. The most interesting feature of the mushroom is that the pore surface instantly turns brown where it is touched. Sometimes a standing tree being decayed by G. This causes the conks to become deformed. The mushrooms always want to grow parallel to the ground because that allows them to drop spores into air currents.

When a tree falls down, the mushroom ends up perpendicular to the ground. Any spores released will fall to the bottom of the cylindrical pores and remain inside the mushroom.

To solve this problem, the fungus produces many, tiny conks on the surface of the misaligned conk. The Yellow Flat-Footed Fly is unique in its ability to form galls on a fungus and specifically targets G. The larva feeds on the fungus but does not cause any damage outside the gall. When the larva is ready to metamorphose from a child to an adolescent, it burrows out of the gall and falls to the ground.

It pupates in the soil and eventually emerges as an adult fly. There are numerous Ganoderma species that look nearly identical to G. Humans have found a number of uses for G.

The most important of these is as an artistic medium. However, give it to an artist and the result can be unbelievable. The rapidly-bruising pore surface is also frequently used by people to send notes to their fellow mushroom hunters. This can be done a couple of ways. The still-growing mushroom will eventually erase the note and provide a new, blank canvas.

Another way is to remove it from the tree, write an address on it, add some stamps, and mail it from the nearest Post Office. Believe it or not, the USPS will deliver the conk to its intended recipient note: I have not tried this myself. If you do collect some G. Remember, mushrooms are living things and serve an important role in the propagation of fungi. All Ganoderma species are considered to have basically the same health benefits.

Traditional Chinese medicine considers Ganoderma species especially G. MycoBank lists the current name of G. If the rules of mycological nomenclature dictate that G. This post does not contain enough information to positively identify any mushroom. When collecting for the table, always use a local field guide to identify your mushrooms down to species.

In this study we elucidate antioxidative properties of the mushroom Ganoderma applanatum Pers. The tea extract has been shown to increase to different extents the antioxidative efficiency of para-substituted phenolics, with the most profound effect for 2- 4-hydroxyphenyl ethaneol tyrosol. Within the range of physiological concentrations, the symbatic correlation of the antioxidative action of the fungal samples with the volume of tea extract in the submerged culture medium was observed. We propose an approach to obtain, through the use of black tea extracts as the nutrient medium component, large amounts of G.
