State of the World’s Fungi Symposium
13–14 September 2018
Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew
In conjunction with the publication of a cutting-edge annual report, scientists and policymakers will gather at Kew for the first international State of the World’s Fungi Symposium.
Building on the success of Kew’s State of The World’s Plants project, the State of the World’s Fungi report provides a review of our current state of knowledge and the major issues affecting fungal diversity and abundance. Also featured in the report are fungal-plant interactions, conservation and uses of fungi, and the fungal tree of life.
The two-day symposium brings together plant and fungal scientists, ecologists, conservationists and industry and policy experts from around the world, to discuss issues raised in the report.
