Title: The Effects of Straight-Chain Alcohols and Aldehydes on Germination of Aspergillus Carbonarius Spores
Authors: Abe, Janice

Issue Date: 15 Jan 2014
Publisher: University of Hawaii at Manoa
Abstract: Fungi produce spores as a primary means of reproduction. Previous work has indicated that these spores often do not germinate near the parent colony or near other spores of the same species. The literature indicates that the inhibitor produced by the mycelium or the spores of some fungi is a volatile product of metabolism. Alcohols, aldehydes, organic acids, and related compounds have been suggested as possible sporostatic substances.
