A thorough listing of Colombia’s known fungi.
Catalogue of Fungi of Colombia is the first comprehensive listing of the known Colombian fungi. It was compiled by a team of Colombian and international mycologists from the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, the Humboldt Institute, and other partner organizations. The catalog is accompanied by fifteen chapters written by specialists providing perspectives on the state of knowledge of the Colombian fungi covering a range of topics, from the diversity of the main groups of fungi and history of mycological studies in Colombia to aspects of the biogeography, ecology, biotechnology, conservation, and uses of Colombian fungi. The catalog is further enriched by supplementary material that allows readers to explore open questions, develop new ideas on the use of fungi and their conservation, and foster social and environmental awareness.
