Description

This occurence list is a result of 210 forays conducted by the New Jersey Mycological Association, USA (www.njmyco.org). NJMA is a non-profit citizen science organization whose aims are to provide a means for sharing ideas, experiences, knowledge and common interests regarding fungi, and to furnish mycological information and educational materials to those who wish to increase their knowledge about mushrooms. Forays took place during May-November and were open to anyone wishing to participate, including non-members. Each foray was led by a seasoned member of NJMA. At each foray, fungal fruit bodies were observed and collected by ca. 20-30 attendees. Collecting took place during the course of two hours on land within a ca. 1-mile radius from the starting point (see latitude and longitude for each foray location). Species were identified immediately using field guides, other printed works, and various online resources. We acknowledge the participation of all citizens who joined the forays. This data set is featured in a publication: Shumskaya M., Filippova N., Lorenzen L., Blue S., Andrew C., Lorusso N.S. (2023) Citizen science helps in the study of fungal diversity in New Jersey.

Sampling Methods

Fungal species were observed, collected and brought to identification tables after two hours of foraying. Identification was performed using field guides and other printed works, and various online resources (e.g. MushroomExpert.com).

Study Extent Collecting was performed for two hours on land within a ca. 1-mile radius from the starting point (see latitude and longitude for each location). Collecting was performed from May through November (2007-2019).

Method step description:

  1. The duration of each foray was two hours.

Additional Metadata

Purpose This dataset is a result of the months-long effort led by the members and supporters of the New Jersey Mycological Association, including but not limited to casual participants, amateur mycologists and naturalists, and anyone else interested in looking for and/or identifying fungi. The main goal of this effort is to collect and identify the fungi found in a variety of habitats and ecological regions of New Jersey and to systematically record their occurrence and distribution, with a particular focus on rare and unknown taxa.
