About This Project

‘Waxcap’ fungi of the tribe Hygrocybeae are a good indicator of environmental health due to their specific habitat requirements. In the Sydney Basin, nine species in the tribe Hygrocybeae have been listed as endangered due to habitat loss and a lack of knowledge about their ecology. This project aims to build a better picture of the specific habitat requirements of threatened waxcaps and create a database of DNA sequences that will be used to conserve the species.
