The genus Trichoderma is cosmopolitan in soils and on decaying wood and vegetable matter. Species of Trichoderma are frequently dominant components of the soil microflora in widely varying habitats. Samuels (1996) provides a comprehensive review of the biology of Trichoderma, and of the technological exploitation of Trichoderma species for enzyme production and biological control.

Khả năng phân giải lignocellulose
Lignocellulose represents a considerable challenge to enzymatic hydrolysis on account of its heterogeneous composition and physical structure evolved to resist degradation. Its main component, cellulose, is composed of long, unbranched glucose polymers packed onto each other to form highly insoluble crystals. To meet the challenge of crystalline cellulose degradation, potent cellulolytic organisms, including Trichoderma, produce complex mixtures of enzymes all required for efficient solubilization of the substrate.
