Fruit bodies of basidiomycetes have been utilized for a long time. They belong to two physiological categories which differ in their ecological patterns. One type comprises the wood rotting and litter decomposing fungi, and the other type the mycorrhiza. The wood rotting fungi especially have been developed in the field of industrial cultivation of edible mushrooms. Much work has been focused on topics of the fructification mechanism of basidiomycetes. The results of this work have contributed to the industrial scale of edible mushroom cultivation. This review describes the outlines of fructification topics in the culture environment and substrate field, and refers to the relationship between cultivation methods and the fructification mechanism.
