Third Mt Conobolas Fungus Foray & Survey
AFTERNOON SESSION – The fungi of Mt Canobolas and the surrounding area are little known. Only very scant and mostly anecdotal records exist. Fungi are an important part of these ecosystems especially in creating and stabilising soils, nourishing and interconnecting plants, as a food supply for animals, and underpinning the health and resilience of the mount.
This aim of the foray and survey is to equip participants with fungus identification skills and the basic principles and protocols for surveying fungi in the field, and to build on the data collected at the first two surveys.
Following an introductory overview we will work in groups to survey the fungi of the field sites using field guides and other resources to use in the field.
