Abstract

Airborne basidiospores released from naturally produced basidiocarps of the beefsteak fungus Fistulina hepatica (Schaeff.): Fr. were collected by placing simple spore samplers below the centres of developing basidiocarps at two localities in Central Slovakia. This fungus liberates its basidiospores from the beginning of July to the first half of November. From 1 mm2 of hymenophore with tubes 2.4 X 101 - 5.04 X 104 basidiospores were discharged in the course of 24hours. Basidiospore counts were the highes tfrom orange-red and orange-red to bruising reddish brown pore surfaces. The course of spore discharge in relation to rainfall data is ambiguous.
