their growth. To the beginner, however, they resemble real contaminants and therefore must be included in this chapter. Examples of yield enhancing organisms are several thermophilic fungi and
bacteria, including:
Hum icola
To ru/a

Actinomyces
Strep tomyces

Select Pseudomonas and Bacillus species
These organisms are encouraged during the preparation of compost or during spawn run and are
rarely seen in agar or grain culture. Since they can not accurately be termed contaminants, the
aforementioned groups are not in the following key though they are fully discussed in the ensuing
descriptions.

Fungi, bacteria and viruses can be roughly delimited according to their size. All but viruses can
be defected by the home cultivator. Viruses can prevent fruiting, malform the mushroom fruitbody,
and expose the crop to further infestations from other pathogens. Since detecting viruses is beyond
the means of home cultivators, they have also been excluded from this key.
