About this book

In these proceedings the latest contributions to the study of macrofungi in Greenland is presented: the papers on the genera Galerina and Phaeogalera by Gulden as well as the treatment of Lycoperdon by Jeppson. In the paper on Collybia s. str. by Hughes and Petersen they introduce molecular methods on Greenland fungi. Here they show that the three widespread species are genetically more or less similar throughout their distribution in the Northern Hemisphere, but the Greenlandic populations have one or more special features possibly because they are small and isolated.

Recently Chlebicki and Knudsen (2001), Chlebicki and Raitviir (2003) and Raitviir (2003) have contributed a number of pyrenomycetes and discomycetes new to Greenland and some new to science. 

Apart from the publications in Arctic and Alpine Mycology many mycologists contributed to the knowledge of Greenland fungi through their collections during the past 25 years. Most of their material is deposited at the Botanical Museum, University of Copenhagen (C) and most of the collections are entered in a database as a preparation for the forthcoming funga of basidiomycetes. A preliminary list of basidiomycetes is included here by Borgen, Elborne and Knudsen.
