Ectomycorrhizal synthesis of Lactarius deliciosus Fr. and Pinus sylvestris L.

P. Royo, M. Fernandez Toiran, C. R. Fischer


Several nutritive media were tested to select the optimal medium for the mycelial growth of Boletus edulis Bull.: Fr., Lactarius deliciosus Fr., y Suillus luteus (L.: Fr.) Gray. The results show that it is not possible to determine the optimal nutritive medium for each species, because of the existence of a significant interaction between the strain factor and the nutritive medium. Ectomycorrhizae of Lactarius deliciosus Fr. y Pinus sylvestris L. are described.
