Mycology and the future

Written by
Mycology and the future American Academy of Microbiology

I would like to call attention to a report of the American Academy of Microbiology entitled “The Fungal Kingdom – diverse and essential roles in earth´s ecosystem”. This 48 pages report from 2008 culminates in ten recommendations for the further development of mycology, which are still of unchanged importance in 2017. As a fungal physiologist I especially appreciate recommendation 6 – “Increase Training in Fungal Physiology and Classical Mycology” – which emphasizes that this is a clear need to maintain a pool of expertise in these fields, because as stated in this report: “Despite the diversity that science has revealed about fungi and their myriad roles in health, ecology, and industry, much about these organisms remains a mystery”.http://asmscience.org/content/report/colloquia/colloquia.42
