The Network

ISPRA has started the Network for the study of mycological diversity to collect, systematize and publish data relating to national fungal species combined with habitats.

Join the Network

The Network is based on the voluntary participation of Italian mycologists, and the collaboration of associations, mycological groups and scientific institutions.

Fungi Information System

The Fungi Information System is the national public database that collects data sent by the network of contributors. 

Going to the field

The contributors adhering to the Network participate in the national Fungi census initiative and send data with IT apps.

The Fungarium

The ISPRA fungarium is the structure where dried fungal samples are stored and submitted to genetic analysis.                                                                       

Activities and Initiatives

The network participates in activities and initiatives at national and European mycological level.
