Abstract:

Ganoderma is widely distributed mushroom with the longest record of medicinal use. Specimens of Ganoderma were collected from several locations in Navsari. These were identified on the basis of macroscopic and microscopic traits of fruiting bodies and biological properties of pure cultures. A total of seven Ganoderma isolates were collected and named based on genus, place and locality. These were GNN-1, GNN-2, GNN-3, GND-1, GND- 2, GNG-1 and GNG-2. The shape of basidiocarp varied from auriform to discoid, colour from light to dark brown; they were either sessile or stipitate with double walled ellipsoid brown coloured basidiospores and pore layers were white or brownish white coloured. The colour of mycelia varied from white to off white colour and density varied from cottony to velvety. Thick walled and elliptical to spherical shaped chlamydospores found in four isolates and the position was varied from terminal to intercalary. The maximum growth was recorded in Mushroom Complete Medium (MCM) media viz., 7.20cm, 6.67cm, 6.63cm and 5.97cm in GNN-2, GNG-1, GND-1 and GNN-1, respectively on fifth day of inoculation. Mycelial growth of GNN-2 was significantly more as compared to rest of the isolates which covered the petriplate earlier to all i.e. on sixth day.
