Danish Mycological Society, fungal records database
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.
