Due in large part to a continually increasing world population, humankind, particularly in developing countries, is facing three basic problems that are daily growing more acute: a shortage of food, a reduction in the quality of health, and environmental deterioration. This overview considers the concepts of applied mushroom biology and the international mushroom movement, and their respective contributions to the development of the world mushroom industry and its links with global business. Applied mushroom biology represents a new discipline concerned with research, development, and initiatives (R, D, and I) related to the mushroom industry. The international mushroom movement is a framework that embraces the complementarities and interconnectedness of the four main international mushroom organizations. The multidimensional nature of the global mushroom industry, its role in addressing the critical issues faced by humankind, and the positive contributions it offers to human welfare are evaluated and presented.
