Relevance to Humans and Ecosystems
Glossary for Boletus floridanus
- In mushrooms: hymenium is broadly attached to the stem
- arbuscular mycorrhizal association
- A form of mutualism between a fungus and the roots of a vascular plant, where hyphae of the fungus penetrate the plant cell wall and invaginate its cell membrane. Once inside, the fungus forms highly branched structures for nutrient exchange with the plant called arbuscules. Aids in the acquisition by the plant of nutrients such as phosphorus from the soil.
- A shape quality that obtains by virtue of the bearer having inward facing edges; having a surface or boundary that curves or bulges outward, as the exterior of a sphere.
- A physical quality inhering in a bearer by virtue of the bearer's disposition to being fit to be eaten.
- A physical quality inhering in a bearer by virtue of the bearer being suitable for use as food.
- A quality inhering in a bearer by virtue of the bearer's having a horizontal surface without a slope, tilt, or curvature.
- The spore-bearing layer of the fruiting body of certain fungi, containing asci or basidia.
- mushroom cap shape
- Approximate 3D shape of the cap of the mushroom.
- olive brown
- A color consisting of brown and green hues, predominantly brown.
- A porosity quality inhering in a bearer by virtue of the bearer's being capable of admitting the passage of gas or liquid through pores or interstices. (or, as in fungi, solids such as spores may be admitted through pores in the hymenium, for example)
- spore print
- The spore print is the powdery deposit obtained by allowing spores of a fungal fruit body to fall onto a surface underneath. It is an important diagnostic character in most handbooks for identifying mushrooms. It shows the color of the mushroom spores if viewed en masse.
- In fungi: A stalk or stem; composed of hyphae arrayed parallel to the long axis of the structure; a stipe may be a single supporting hypha
- trophic guild
- A group of species that exploit the same food resources, and/or use the same feeding or foraging methods. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guild_(ecology)
- A surface feature shape in which the bearer's surface is lacking ridges, pits, rugosity or other surface structures.
