Fungi are important components of forest ecosystem mgmt. because they perform essential ecological functions, & commercial harvest of wild edible mushrooms contributes significantly to the regional economy. Inventory & monitoring provide info. for improving mgmt. decisions, but fungi present a unique set of sampling challenges. To address these challenges, a conf. entitled Ecosystem Mgmt. of Forest FungiÓ was convened This report describes the forest mgmt. context of fungus inventory & monitoring issues, summarizes the mycological studies presented at the Conf., & provides a synopsis of audience discussion.
