Introduction

These are the Devon Fungus Group foray records.  The records consist of three sections for each site.

The first section is a taxonomic index giving the name of the fungus together with other information associated with the record. Names are listed in taxonomic rank as follows:

phylum (e.g. Basidiomycota)

class (e.g. Basidiomycetes)

order (e.g. Agaricales)

family (e.g. Agaricaceae)

Under the name of the fungus the following information may be given: morph; associated organism; substrate.

Morph
. This indicates the reproductive state as either the anamorph (asexual) or teleomorph (sexual). Where reproductive structures of both types occur this is indicated by the term holomorph. Generally for the larger fungi no morph state is indicated since these are always teleomorphs. For the rusts a special terminology is used to identify the reproductive structures as follows: stage 0 = pycnidia; 1 = aecia; 2 = uredinia; 3 = telia; 4 = basidia.

Associated organism. Usually this is either a spcific organism or a generalization such as Gymnospermae (to indicate coniferous trees).

Substrate. The particular material upon which the fungus appeared to develop. The term is often follwed by a qualifier e.g. branch, fallen.

The second section is a an alphabetical index of species

The third section is an associated organism index. This lists the fungi associated with particular organisms or groups. Study of this list can help you learn and appreciate the relationships between fungi and other organisms.
