Summary

Full Title

Danish Mycological Society, fungal records database

Description

Database containing observations of fungi and Mycetozoa mainly from Denmark. New observations are continuously added through the registration portal http://svampe.databasen.org, which was developed as part of the "Danmarks Svampeatlas" project. The project is a collaboration between the Natural History Museum of Denmark and Department of Biology, University of Copenhagen, the Danish Mycological Society and MycoKey. The project received generous financial support from Aage V. Jensen Naturfond. 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 publicly available. 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.

Methodology

Study extent

Europe

Sampling description

Observations mainly of fruit bodies done by amateur mycologists, recorded with very variable geographical precision. As of 2016 geolocation have been possible with both build-in GPS in mobile devices, EXIF data from geolocated photos and web map services using various topographical and satelite layers. From 2006-2015 Google Maps was 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 2009-2014 and has involved microscopical examination of thousands of specimens. Older and newer data have mainly been validated based on photos and knowledge of the skills of the data providers
