The Open Forum

The free entry discussion pages for all aspects of field mycology

Introduction

This forum is an important feature of the Trust's website. It provides an unparalleled opportunity for Trust members and visitors to post threads about any aspect of fungi and field mycology that they choose. Text and images are accepted. Will all users, however, keep in mind that naming species from posted photographs is invariably risky and regrettably material identified in this way cannot be included in datasets unless it has also been determined through proper examination of voucher material.

First Time Registration

Registration is free and open to anyone. However forum members are required to register with, and use in postings, their normal identities. Pseudonyms are not permissable. Please note that in view of the number of recent 'hoax' requests for registration, applications which include pseudonyms will now be deleted without further notice.

On the initial Board Index page of the forum there is a prominent 'Login - Register' panel beneath the list of forums. This is the login for existing members. To register for the first time look towards the blue bar at the top of the page and to the Search panel at the right hand end. Below this you will find a small instruction 'Register'. Click here, agree the terms of use and enter your details including a pasword of your choice. Submit.
