13th and 14th of September 2018 at Kew

Scientists and policymakers will gather at Kew in the UK for the first International State of the World’s Fungi Symposium. Following on from the success of the State of The World’s Plants symposia; the two-day symposium offers a platform to discuss issues raised in the State of the World’s Fungi Report and to engage the scientific community, policymakers and public alike.

The symposium will be based around seven themed sessions, each comprising talks from invited experts followed by a panel Q&A to discuss the emerging issues:

  1. Conservation of fungi: what, why, where and how?
  2. Does all plant life depend on fungi?
  3. And have you forgotten the lichens?
  4. Do fungi provide a greater ecosystem service or disservice?
  5. Fungal networking – who benefits?
  6. Panning for gold in the mould: where do we find commercial value in fungi?
  7. Exploring the dark taxa: when does a molecular signature become a species?
