This site provides data on taxa of the macrofungal, largely ectomycorrhizal genus Amanita, the saprobic genus Limacella, and the family Amanitaceae (Agaricales, Basidiomycetes, Fungi) of which these genera are the only known members.
The Boletineae, a suborder of Boletales, is treated here to include the mushroom genera assigned to the Boletaceae by Singer (1986). Much of the recent generic recognition is derived from phylogenetic inferences published by Nuhn et al. (2013) and Wu et al. (2014). Specimens housed in herbarium NY can be accessed or searched.
The present version of the site provides extensive bibliographic information for mycological publications, most dating from the early 1800s to the 1980s,
DEEMY is an information system for determination and characterisation of ectomycorrhizae. The goal is to offer a online database system for multiple usage and therewith dissemination of expert knowledge especially by providing public access to database generated identification keys, natural language descriptions and illustrations of ectomycorrhizae
The Index Fungorum, the global fungal nomenclator coordinated and supported by the Index Fungorum Partnership (CABI, CBS, Landcare Research-NZ), contains names of fungi (including yeasts, lichens, chromistan fungal analogues, protozoan fungal analogues and fossil forms) at all ranks.
A list of Kew's scientific databases. This includes Kew's collection databases, plant name resources and world checklists.
This project is coordinated by the Index Fungorum Partnership with the aim of providing a digital archive for books, journals, thesauri, indexes and other publication important to systematic mycology (fungi and fungal analogues, including yeasts, lichens, myxomycetes, downy mildews, and all their allies).
This site contains a systematic listing of all known genera and species of lichenicolous fungi (modified from Lawrey and Diederich 2003), known hosts, isolated strains available in major culture collections (with collection accession numbers), and published sequences (with GenBank accession numbers). Literature references are provided for each genus.
An intensive inventory of the macrofungi (i.e., mushrooms, boletes, puffballs, bracket fungi, etc.) of Costa Rica began to document the diversity of Neotropical macrofungi to further our understanding of their biology and to include them in forest management plans and conservation activities. The information has added significantly to our knowledge of Neotropical mycology and is available for subsequent studies on the ecology and systematics of macrofungi by the collaborators and the rest of the mycological community.
MycoBank is an on-line database aimed as a service to the mycological and scientific society by documenting mycological nomenclatural novelties (new names and combinations) and associated data, for example descriptions and illustrations.
an Internet Portal from Scientists for Scientists Presenting Information about Diversity of Fungi
Open Access, Full-text scans of taxonomic and allied literature in the natural sciences
The digital collections of the NYBG Virtual Herbarium, comprising approximately 1,300,000 herbarium specimens and 225,000 high-resolution specimen images.
The Index contains entries dealing with various aspects of extant and fossil American plants and fungi, including systematics and floristics, morphology, and ecology, as well as economic botany and general botany; "America" is defined in the broadest possible sense, encompassing land and marine plants and fungi from Greenland to Antarctica. American territory outside this area, e.g., Hawaii, is not included.
The Biodiversity Heritage Library-Australia is the digital literature component of the Atlas of Living Australia. Increase the exposure of Australian literature, e.g. by linking BHL-Au to national catalogues, such as the National Library of Australia’s Trove. Scope and undertake new digitisation projects to add new Australian-published literature, or rare literature held in Australian libraries
The Encyclopedia of Life (EOL) works to provide global access to knowledge about life on Earth. The Encyclopedia of Life gathers and shares scientific knowledge about all living things in a single online resource
GBIF is an international organisation that is working to make the world's biodiversity data accessible everywhere in the world. GBIF makes available data that are shared by hundreds of data publishers from around the world with the provision that users of any data accessed through or retrieved via the GBIF Portal will always give credit to the original data publishers.
Over 180,000 specimens of which about 100,000 correspond to type specimens of vascular plants and mosses. Also included are fungi, lichens, bryophytes, and algae.
IFPNI provides an authoritative online, open-access, community-generated registry of fossil plant nomenclature as a service to the global scientific community. Dynamic data base documents all nomenclatural novelties (new scientific names of extinct organisms) and associated data, including registration of the scientific publications containing nomenclatural acts and authors generated taxonomic literature in palaeobotany and palaeontology in general, and allied disciplines.
to create an easily accessible database with reliable information on species names and their hierarchical classification. The database will be reviewed periodically to ensure high quality with valid classifications, revisions, and additions of newly described species. The ITIS includes documented taxonomic information of flora and fauna from both aquatic and terrestrial habitats.
List of Species of the Brazilian Flora. The Instituto de Pesquisas Jardim Botânico do Rio de Janeiro was designated by the Ministry of Environment through the Centro Nacional de Conservação da Flora (CNCFlora) to coordinate and organize Brazil’s working list of known plant species "Lista de Espécies da Flora do Brasil".
Posted here are the abstracts of almost all journal articles dealing with mycorrhizae from 1991 through 2009 (over 11,000 citations), as well as citations to some 270 mycorrhizal reviews, over 70 mycorrhizal books, many mycorrhizal theses and dissertations
The Tree of Life Web Project is a collection of information about biodiversity. Its goal is to contain a page with pictures, text, and other information for every species and for each group of organisms, living or extinct. Connections between Tree of Life web pages follow phylogenetic branching patterns between groups of organisms, so visitors can browse the hierarchy of life and learn about phylogeny and evolution as well as the characteristics of individual groups.
The WWW Virtual Library (VL) is the oldest catalogue of the Web, started by Tim Berners-Lee, the creator of HTML and of the Web itself, in 1991 at CERN in Geneva. Unlike commercial catalogues, it is run by a loose confederation of volunteers, who compile pages of key links for particular areas in which they are expert; even though it isn't the biggest index of the Web, the VL pages are widely recognised as being amongst the highest-quality guides to particular sections of the Web.
