Summary

Full Title

Danish Mycological Society, fungal records database

Description

Database containing observations of fungi and Mycetozoa from Denmark. New observations are added throughout the years from the registration system "Svampefund" http://www.svampe.dk/svampefund/index.htm, which was built as part of the Danmarks Svampeatlas, a 5-year project to collect data of all Danish Basidiomycota. Svampeatlas project is collaboration between the Natural History Museum and Department of Biology, University of Copenhagen, Foreningen til Svampekundskabens Fremme (Danish Mycological Society) and MycoKey. The project received generous financial support from Aage V. Jensen Naturfond (2008). The aim of Svampe Atlas is to compile all Basidiomycota from Denmark and to increase the knowledge of fungal distribution and ecology in Denmark by making this information widely available to everyone. With more than 400 active users contributing to the project, there has been more than 250.000 finds with a total of about 2.500 species of Basidiomycota. In addition a similar number of older finds has been imported from various published sources, persona and project databases. The Svampe Atlas project was managed by Jan Vesterholt (SNM)(deceased), Thomas Læssøe (Department of Biology, KU) , Jens H. Petersen (MycoKey), Tobias Frøslev (SNM) and Jacob Heilmann-Clausen (Danish Mycological Society) while Christian Lange (SNM) is the database manager.

Methodology

Study extent

Denmark

Sampling description

Observations (mainly of fruit bodies), mainly by amateur mycologists, recorded with very variable geographical precision. Since 2006 Google Earth has been used as a background map-source and observation precision has been defined by the zoom-level chosen by the data-provider

Quality control

Validation has been intensive by the PI's in the period 2009-2013 and has involved microscopical examination of thousands of specimens. older and never data have mainly been validated based on photos and knowledge of the skills of the data providers

Method Steps

  1. Observations (mainly of fruit bodies), mainly by amateur mycologists, recorded with very variable geographical precision. Since 2006 Google Earth has been used as a background map-source and observation precision has been defined by the zoom-level chosen by the data-provider.
