Abstract Basidiomycetes are important components of the decomposer microbial community involved in nutrient cycling and have been exploited successfully in the production of cultivated mushrooms. Environmental factors such as water availability, temperature and pH and their interactions have significant impacts on basidiomycete colonisation and fruiting potential. This chapter examines the effect that temperature, water availability and their interactions have on growth of different temperate and tropical basidiomycetes. Temperature ranges vary widely between temperate and tropical species and profiles for growth are presented. Basidiomycetes are generally more sensitive to matric than solute stress. This has been shown for Trametes species, as well as with Agaricus bisporus and Pleurotus species. The mechanisms of water-stress tolerance have received much attention, especially for cultivated species, where methods for optimising fruiting has been of interest. Sugar alcohols are involved in water-stress tolerance and the role of these in providing a gradient of water movement within mycelium of a range of cultivated and decay species. Basiodiomycetes produce significant amounts of extracellular enzymes to enable them to play such an important role in decomposition processes. Production of cellulases, ligninases and laccases occur over a wide range of temperature and water potentials.

At below the wilting point of plants laccases, cellulases and lignin peroxidases are produced in soil. The ability to produce copious amounts of these enzymes and their stability has resulted in their biotechnological exploitation.
