THE GLOBAL FUNGAL REDLIST INITIATIVE

The initiative is being organized by the five IUCN fungal specialist group chairs together with Craig Hilton-Taylor at IUCN's Red List Unit. The project is led by Greg Mueller, chair of the Fungal Conservation Committee (FunCC) and the mushroom, bracket and puffball specialist group. Michael Krikorev and Anders Dahlberg, mycologists at the Swedish Species Information Centre, have developed and run the web site. The global red-list evaluations of the nominated fungal species will be accomplished by the appropriate fungal specialist group under the coordination of Greg Mueller with supervision from IUCN. All current or past programs or events such as workshops can be found in the Global Fungal Red List Initiative in the list below (You can click View all Proposals and then click Events).
