Mark record


Antibiotic activity of Armillaria mellea (Vahl ex Fr.) Kummer towards many fungi and bacteria, including some very important plant pathogens, was clearly established. Preliminary extraction trials have been negative. No direct relationship was found between the bioluminescence of A. mellea and its antibiotic activity. Clitocybe tabescens (Scop. ex Fr.) Bres. also possesses antibiotic capability, but to a much lower degree.
