Guidelines are provided for collecting a group of organisms that has often been
overlooked in earlier inventories: the kingdom Fungi and other groups that are
traditionally collected by mycologists such as slime molds. After a short
introduction on fungi and the feasibility of an ‘all fungal taxa’ inventory, the
authors divide the fungi in six ‘practical’ groups that require specific approaches:
slime molds, lichens, parasitic fungi of plants and animals, larger mushrooms,
microscopic fungi. Various topics are discussed in relation to three chronological
stages (before, during and after the collecting trip) and include various aspects
such as equipment, photography, barcoding, documenting, storing collections,
macrochemical reactions, preparation of spore deposits, humid chamber
technique, ... At the end of the paper the reader will find a selection of various
important web references for the field mycologist interested in various fungal
groups and their taxonomic aspects.
