Title: Establishing an International Flammulina Community.
Author: Arend F. van Peer
Knowledge and utilization of mushrooms have remained underdeveloped compared to other microorganisms, plants and animals, and a necessary catch-up is hindered by scattering of mushroom research world-wide. Existing communication structures (e.g. international meetings, journals, fungal and other communities) inadequately address the special problems that divide the mushroom field. To improve utilization and application of mushrooms there is an urgent need for communities that overcome the most prevalent boundaries.
