Fungi of the genus Pleurotus are one of the most popular edible fungi in the world. Most of the cultivaion substrates and wood too is very poor in nitrogen, so one of the greatest problem for all wood decay fungi including Pleurotus species is to provide themselves nitrogen nutrition. To satisfy their nitrogen requirement Pleurotus fungi can parasitize on the bacteria, yeasts, and algae cells in nature and during the cultivation process. This book observed some of the wide cultivated Pleurotus species in mixed cultures with 8 species of yeasts from different taxonomic groups on agar media. The morphological and physiological peculiarities of Pleurotus mycelium were described on agar medium in mixed cultures with the suspension of alive/dead yeast cells. The trophic preferendum was defined for each of five Pleurotus species, and than Pleurotus fungi were cultivated on substrate in association with the yeast species from the range of trophic preferendum.
