Fungimap VII Conference

 

Rawson Village hosted the seventh biennial Fungimap Conference in May 2013. The conference was jointly organised by Fungimap and the Field Naturalists’ Club of Victoria (FNCV) in order to both raise awareness and build community capacity in appreciating, identifying and recording fungi.

The Conference included a Day of Talks, a weekend of forays and workshops on a diverse range of topics, and a full day foray to Tarra Bulga National Park. Additional activities included a Trivia Night, a Celebratory Dinner, the Fungimap Choir, Fungimap Target Species Bingo and a Silent Auction.

The Conference was highly successful, attracting over 80 participants including students, educators, researchers, government employees, field naturalists, land managers and environmental consultants.

With seven forays organised each morning, participants made 791 observational records of fungi during the conference, of which 245 were identified only to genus level, 30 taxa were “unknown”, and the remainder of 515 records were identified to species level. Additionally, approximately 2,000 photographs were taken and submitted to the Fungimap Images Database, and 25 collections were made for the National Herbarium of Victoria.
