Scope edit

This WikiProject aims primarily to describe all fungi, that is, all species belonging to the kingdom Fungi. This project is not limited to species descriptions and taxonomy; all important aspects of fungal biology are covered by this project. Additionally, the history of the science of mycology and biographies of mycologists are also part of this project.

Similar WikiProjects edit

This project was largely modeled after Wikiproject Plants and follows many of the same guidelines, modified to the unique needs of describing fungi and mycology.

Some pages on psychoactive genera and species have been created as part of Wikiproject Psychedelics, Dissociatives and Deliriants

Creation and maintenance of biographies of mycologists has some overlap with Wikiproject Biography.

Goals edit

  1. Describe all major divisions and other notable taxa of the kingdom Fungi.
  2. For species, describe (where applicable) morphology, taxonomy, distribution, autecology, usage in food and medicine, toxicity, trivia, and other notable aspects.
  3. Describe all notable aspects of fungal biology.
  4. Describe the history of the science of mycology and notable contributors to that field.

Article structure edit

  • Taxoboxes should be given for taxa at all levels. Genus and species names in taxoboxes should include the author of the taxon in addition to the genus name or binomial.
    • Articles about species with macroscopic fruiting bodies should include Mycomorphboxes.
  • The classification should use currently recognized monophyletic groups whenever possible. In some cases, such as the Zygomycetes, paraphyletic taxa may need to be listed until a generally accepted classification of those groups comes into use.

Article templates edit

For examples where most of these aspects have been described, see Psilocybe, Cyathus, Myco-heterotrophy, Arbuscular mycorrhizas, and H. W. Harkness.
