Documenting Fungal Biodiversity in Oregon and the Pacific Northwest
We are a group of mycologists and researchers working together to produce an accurate census of the macrofungal species (e.g., mushrooms, polypores, truffles, cup fungi, etc.) that exist in the state of Oregon. We have a shared goal to coordinate professional and amateur mycologists to document, describe, and disseminate knowledge about our Oregonian fungi. Our project is a regional contributor to the North American Mycoflora Project, and involves mycologists from Oregon State University, University of Oregon, Lane Community College, Cascade Mycological Society, Oregon Mycological Society and the North American Truffle Society.
