Details of a science projectArctic and alpine fungi occuring in Svalbardtheme:biodiversity
RIS-id = 11507
The research aims at improving our knowledge on the ecology, distribution and systematics of arctic and alpine fungi occurring in Svalbard (biodiversity assessment). The fieldwork consists of collecting DNA samples and small amount of fruit bodies for molecular systematics and gathering info on the ecology of the collected fungi. The data will be compared with those collected on Edgeøya and other parts of Svalbard in 1985, 1986, 1988 and 2015. Changes in species composition will be related to climatic change.
