Agaricus bisporus is one of the most cultivated and consumed mushroom species, and this situation has not changed much for several centuries. However, in recent decades, very large resources and diversity have been discovered within this species (hundreds of wild strains are available), as well as in the genus where the number of recognized species has increased from 300 to 500 in the last twenty years. This diversity is largely undiscovered and remains under-exploited. I encourage you to publish original data on all aspects of this biodiversity in this genus.
This includes taxonomy, systematics, phylogeny, biogeography, modes of reproduction, population genetics, genetic resources, ecology, habitat, variability of putative adaptive traits (mushroom fruiting, cap color, tolerance to dryness, high temperature or pathogens, etc.), edibility, and domestication. Bioactive molecules with biodiversity perspective, i.e., including comparisons between strains or basidiomata of the same or different species.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Fungi is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
