Macromycetes in the Finse area, Hardangervidda
About 370 species of macromycetes have been identified in the area during sporadic visits since 1972. The main focus has been on Basidiomycota, especially the agarics. Many genera, for example most dark spored agarics, are still poorly known and many more species than those identified occur in the area. Part of the project has been to disclose connections between fungal species and vegetation types by means of studying the funga in a set of permanent plots

“A preliminary guide to the macromycetes in the Finse area, Hardangervidda, Norway” including keys and descriptions of ca 350 species, was prepared by Gro Gulden for the participants of an international symposium (ISAM VII) held at Finse in 2005.
This 'Guide' will now be updated according to modern taxonomy and supplemented by illustrations (colour photos and microscopic drawings) as well as new information on species in the area. Other mycologists collecting in the area are invited to join the project with supplemental information, if desired also as co-authors.
