WORKSHOP – Fungus Identification & Survey

Fungus Identification and Survey Training Day

The aim of the training day is to equip participants with the basic skills and protocols for surveying fungi in the field. It will include an overview of the major groups of fungi and the features necessary for field identification; the role of fungi in ecosystems particularly following fire; and techniques for surveying fungi and recording data (written records, photographs and specimens).

The day begins with a two-hour indoor session followed by a four hour field trip to identify and survey fungi. It is suitable for locals, students, conservationists and anyone interested in surveying fungi and understanding their ecological roles.
