Our unprecedented statewide initiative (CA FUNDIS) to document and protect fungi across California has finished its first year. We are incredibly proud of our team. Please read about our work in the CA FUNDIS Year 1 Report and share it with your friends! 

Thanks to the state of CA and the California Institute for Biodiversity, CA FUNDIS is a thriving unprecedented model for fungal documentation and protection for the rest of North America. Year 2 is poised to grow collections, focus collection strategy and collaboration, and continue sequencing and vouchering specimens to save for generations to come.

FUNDIS Local Project DNA Sequencing

September - January 2023 
Big news! FUNDIS is opening up DNA sequencing again for FUNDIS Local Projects thanks to a partnership with Stephen Russell and his company Mycota. All of our FUNDIS Local Projects will be eligible to send Stephen specimens for DNA sequencing. Our FUNDIS Volunteer Sequence Validation Committee will then analyze the results and determine the species.
