Workshop European Mycologists 2-4 Feb 2015

Start: Mon, 02 Feb 2015

End: Wed, 04 Feb 2015

Location: Sweden, Södermanland, Flen, Ekenäs Herrgård (open in google maps)

Contact: Anders Dahlberg

Participants: Göran Thor, Toby Spribille, Tiina Randlane, Sergio Perez-Ortega, Johan Nitare, Pierre-Arthur Moreau, David Minter, Thomas Læssøe, Tetiana Kryvomaz, Tommy Knutsson, Ivona Kautmanova, Mitko Karadelev, Mikael Jeppson, Ibai Olariaga Ibarguren, André Aptroot, Martyn Ainsworth, Anders Dahlberg, Michael Krikorev

This workshop will be an important and critical step for moving fungal conservation forward. The overall goal with this initiative is that at least 300 fungal species are evaluated against IUCN:s red list criteria on a global scale by the end of 2015. At least 50 species will be evaluated as an outcome of this workshop in February. Only well-defined and accepted species will be evaluated. Critically needed is (1) a motivation of why the species is proposed for evaluation, (2) the species geographic range and in particular information of the population status within the range, (3) the population size and trends at the European and global scale. Any change of potential habitats and substrate over time (declined? stable?). Refer to statistics if possible. (4) Describe ecology and habitat (5) Elaborate on threats. The extent and reliability of the documentation is crucial for the evaluation. Try to arrange a photo for each species to be uploaded.

Currently 137 species proposals needs more attention and/or data before they can be assessed. Please read the assessment status notes. Please feel free to comment and add data where missing:
  1. include a motivation of why the species is proposed for evaluation,
  2. describe the species geographic range and provide information about the population status within the range,
  3. describe the population size and trends at the global scale. Any change of potential habitats and substrate over time (declined? stable?). Refer to statistics if possible.
  4. Describe ecology and habitat
  5. Elaborate on threats. The extent and reliability of the documentation is crucial for the evaluation.
  6. Try to arrange a photo for each species to be uploaded.
