Fungimap Events in northern Tasmania 2016
Tasmania, particularly the myrtle beech forests of the Tarkine, are hotspot of fungal diversity. Fungimap has had several expeditions to the Tarkine that have contributed to understanding of Australian Fungi. However it is obvious there is so much more to do in Tasmania! We plan return May 2016 to conduct four days of educational activities followed by a Mycological Expedition to the Tarkine based at Waratah.
You can help support these events in a number of ways:
• Sponsor the event – please contact us
• Donate to the crowd source campaign – Feb 2016
• Attend public events May 2016
Sponsor a species
Fungimap is excited to announce 'sponsor a species': your opportunity to be a part of Australian fungal history!
Fungimappers are busy working towards publishing a second edition of Fungimap's highly successful field guide to Australian fungi, Fungi Down Under. This project involves hundreds of thousands of dollars’ worth of volunteer time to identify and record the species, convert this data into maps, describe the species, source the images and manage the project, etc. We're offering Fungimappers the opportunity to donate to the Austral Fungi Fund which will help us publish the book.
Species are avialable for sponsorship, these are from the first edition of Fungi Down Under and an additional 100 species that will be published in Fungi Down Under 2. Many of these species can be seen on our online field guide.
Your donation as part of Sponsor a species supports the Austral Fungi Fund. The AFF supports the work of Fungimap in advancing knowledge and conservation of Australian fungi, such as through publication of field guides, organising training workshops and preparing submissions that assist public policy development. Fungimap will be pleased to acknowledge your donation in the following ways:
• Acknowledgement of your donation in the print and, if relevant, e-book editions of Fungi Down Under 2. Your donation will also be acknowledged in the Fungi Down Under Online Field Guide, and in the Fungimap Newsletter.
• An A4 certificate of appreciation, and also a proof of the A5 page of the species that has been sponsored once the hard copy book is printed (expected to be in 2018).
• A tax invoice detailing your tax deductible contribution to the Austral Fungi Fund.
Please note only individuals and not-for-profit groups are eligible for their Sponsor a Species donation to be tax-deductible. Businesses can still Sponsor a Species, but the donation would not be tax deductible.
For all questions, please contact us.
Many of the species are avialable for sponsorship through our online shop. A list of all the currently available species are listed below, please contact us directly if a species is not yet in the shop:
