Abstract：The growth and quality of Auricularia auricula under different cultivation models are comparatively analyzed in order to rationally utilize the bamboo forest space and promote the integrated bamboo-fungus management. The results show that A. auricula cultivated in bags with sawdust medium under bamboo forest boasts uniform size, good glossiness and less impurities. Compared with those cultivated in farmland, the yield per bag under bamboo stands increases by 17.2%, and the weight of each fungus increases by 19.7%. A. auricula cultivated under bamboo stands requires less time for harvest than those cultivated in farmland's, which reduces accordingly the time and cost of labors. The nutrient components of A. auricula are obviously affected by the cultivation environments. Those cultivated under bamboo forest contain higher contents of total amino acids, soluble sugar, ash, crude protein, crude fat, Na, Mg and Fe than those in farmland. Apart from the highest soluble sugar content (6.070%) in the first batch of fungus, the second batch has the higher nutrients than the first batch. Maximum economic benefits could be achieved for the A. auricula cultivated under bamboo forests by selecting the bamboo forest with suitable ecological factors such as light, humidity and temperature.
