Project Outputs:
Three specialist conservation groups (for [1] non-lichen-forming ascomycetes & conidial fungi, [2] rusts & smuts, and [3] chromistans, chytrids, myxomycetes & zygo-mycetes), with conser-vation action plans prepared by each group for their fungi. Sampled red lists of microfungi, prepared in collaboration and compatible with the IUCN Sampled Red List project, providing baseline for CBD 2010 objective. Enhanced capacity for microfungal conserva-tion, prioritizing Africa, by training mycologists, deliver-ing equipment and en-hancing web-based in-formational resources.
