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 project "Danmarks Svampeatlas" (Danish Atlas of Fungi), a 5-year project to collect data on all Danish Basidiomycota.
The "Danmarks Svampeatlas" project is collaboration between the Natural History Museum of Denmark
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 Svampeatlas 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 325.000 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.
