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 147 species are under evaluation by authorized editors and assessors.
Please note that only species subject to an active evaluation and assessment process should be placed here.
If the activity is low for a longer period of time, the assessor or the administrator should set the status to "Pending".
