Tutorial : Fungi
<< Back to main tutorial page

All surveys we've done since May 2012 include examinations of macrofungi. These are conducted with the same methodology as our plant surveys. To see if a site has a list of fungi, select a site and look for the "Fungi" link at the top (as shown below). If absolutely no fungi were found, the "Fungi" link will not be available.

This brings up a species list similar to the basic plant species list, and includes the same options for viewing spatial information. Directly below the list is a bar graph indicating the relative prevalence of each major ecological role.

Please note the weather conditions indicated at the top of this list. Fungi are fickle; a site that has only been surveyed during "poor" or "fair" weather conditions will have a less representative sampling than a site that has been surveyed in "good" or "excellent" weather conditions (these classifications take into account precipitation, habitat type, and time of year).

Tutorial : Specific Sites

How do I find what sites are listed, and get to a site page?
How do I find a list of species?
Can I see pictures of the site?
Can I see maps of the site? Or to the site?
Can I see spatial information for species within a site?
Can I make graphs or do heavier data analysis?
Can I export this data somehow?
Can I see soil data?
Can I see data on fungi?
Can I compare smaller scales within plots? (...yes - it's an option here)
Can I calculate FQI? (...yes - it's an option here)
Can I calculate mean C? (...yes - it's an option here)
