Bringing together both professional and amature mycologists, Fungimap records the geographic "distribution of fungal species over time around Australia." Readers may wish to begin by checking out the informational pages under the About Fungi tab, including the Glossary of Useful Terms page. The site's Blog (accessible via the Categories drop-down menu on the right-hand panel) covers topics ranging from the discovery of new species (see the January 1, 2020 post) to the impacts of natural disasters on Australian fungi (see the January 23, 2020 post). Aesthetically inclined visitors will also want to check out the Galleries tab, which contains a set of photo collections from naturalists. In 2019, the organization began creating "a new edition of Fungi Down Under," their mycological map of Australia. More information on this project is available on the FDU2 Maps page (under Fungi Down Under), including links to the test maps created by University of Melbourne postgraduate student August Hao. Australian readers who want to join in on the fungi fun can learn about contributing to the organization's database on the Record page. Fungimap is directed by microbiologist Roz Hart and receives support from Atlas of Living Australia and the Australasian Mycological Society, among other organizations.
