1 Mapping Scotland’s Fungi Recorder’s Conference 2012 Neville Kilkenny

2 Introduction: Problems associated with recording and mapping Scotland’s fungi 1. Fruiting patterns & ‘The Species Accumulation Curve’ 2. Identification - most fungi difficult and require microscopy as well as an expensive library 3. Capacity lacking at professional level of expertise 4. Literature- no definitive Funga Scotica 5. Recording fields – Substrate & Associated Organism 6. Authority by which species are identified 7. Locality 8. Where to submit records to (duplication)
