The Diversity and Evolution of Ectomycorrhizal Fungi of the Guineo-Congolian Rainforest project will document many fungal taxonomic novelties from a poorly explored African region, provide DNA sequence data that will greatly enhance global reference libraries, and provide the first rigorous biogeographic analysis of Gondwanan tropical ECM fungi. The project will also provide training of students and indigenous assistants, internet-based information sharing, and public outreach. Learn more.
