SUMMARY: The rates of ethylene production per unit mass of are highest at low specific growth rates. Thus this fungus probably produces more ethylene in the soil, where growth rates are low, than would have been predicted by laboratory batch culture, where growth rates are high. The rate of utilization of energy-yielding substrate by increases logarithmically with growth rate. This contrasts with the data obtained for and ; it is discussed in terms of the success of as a primary saprophytic sugar fungus.
