Regional Checklists that have been announced in papers published in Mycotaxon are listed with links to both the full checklists and the journal abstracts.
Links to Recommended Online Mycological Resources
- The Mycological Society of America's HOMEPAGE wih links to its newsletter, Inoculum, and to Job opportunities for mycologists.
- A superior site for tracing fungal names is CABI
Bioscience's database, IndexFungorum
- Wondering about the correct author citation to use? Brummitt & Powell's
Authors of Plant Names has been maintained and is updated now
in the International
Plant Names index database. An even more detailed listing is maintained
on the Harvard
University Herbaria's INDEX OF BOTANISTS. Select "publication author" for best information on citing author's names.
- MYCONET editors:
Sabine Huhndorf and Thorsten Lumbsch have taken over Myconet from Ove
Eriksson. They will continue to try to have an updated classification
of Ascomycota and regularly publish notes on new publications regarding
the systematics of Ascomycota at generic and all higher levels. PDF
versions will be produced once a year with a new outline and collected
notes. Future publication will appear anually in the journal Persoonia.
Please feel free to submit notes. They would be very thankful if you
could keep them updated by sending pdf files or reprints of your papers
and hints to papers that they may have missed. Their email addresses
are email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org. The Myconet website can be found at http://www.fieldmuseum.org/myconet/. Any comments on the website are welcome.
truly fascinating non-commercial site devoted to diversity in fungi,
managed by Dagmar Triebel, at the Botanische Staatssammlung München, is
The Mycology.Net. It's truly worth a visit! There is so much information presented you'll need to allow an hour just to appreciate what great links are presented.
particularly active group of mostly European mycologists has ongoing
discussions and usually many and often extraordinarily beautiful
photographs of fruitbodies, slide mounts, and drawings of microscopic
details of collections, mostly of Ascomycetes, but sometimes of
anamorphs, myxomycetes and jelly fungi at ASCOfrance
where anyone can contribute to the ongoing discussions. There is both a
French and an English version available by a simple click. Highly
recommended by the Mycotaxon staff.
- There is an interesting new website devoted to Hysteriaceae and Mytilinidiaceae, hosted by Dr. Eric Boem of Kean University, at http://www.eboehm.com.
