Rare and red-listed fungi in Norrbotten

eDNA from soil can reveal a lot about the biodiversity of bacteria, invertebrates, and fungi which is a useful indicator of the ecological state of different ecosystems.

In this project on behalf of the CAB of Norrbotten we´re looking for rare and red-listed fungi associated to old coniferous forests. These species of fungi are all part of action plans for threatened species. This action is a great example of authorities and researchers joining forces to find out where these fungi grow. It’s the first step in saving these species!
