Revision of Conservation from Tue, 2016-05-03 11:28

There are immediate barriers to the full recognition of fungi within conservation management actions and overall priority-setting. These include the insufficient baseline data on distribution and the lack of formal conservation assessment (i.e. red-listing). Despite various efforts over the years, very few non-lichenized species have formally endorsed assessments under national legislation, and international assessment under IUCN guidelines has also been carried out for only a handful of species.
