Conclusion to ABRS Fungi Grant

Remember the fungi grant that the club co-funded for three years, together with ABRS, for Dr Neale Bougher to work on the fungus family Inocybiaceae?

At last, the book is finally going to be in print! After a lot of hiccups, lack of funding for ABRS and other associated ABRS problems, the book is scheduled to be released in June 2017. We will let you know when we receive a hard copy and will bring it to a meeting to show members.

This grant enabled Neale and his co-researcher Brandon Matheny (a mycologist from USA) to produce an authoritative treatise on this very important fungi family. Many new Australian species were published through this work. Neale is very appreciative of the Club’s support in this project.
