Salerni, E , C. Perini, D. Rocchini, A. Laganà& V De Dominicis. The Italian checklist of macrofungi: distribution of selected target species in Siena Province, Italy. Mycotaxon 86: 123 - 147. 2003.

ABSTRACT: The Working Group for Mycology of the Italian Botanical Society (SBI) proposed a preliminary check-list of Italian macrofungi including 25 species uniformly distributed in Italy and easy to indentify. Later the European Mediterranean Mycological Confederation (CEMMae) proposed the census of 43 species (two of which correspond to the SBI list). Finally the SBI Working Group for Mycology and the CEMMae decided to join their efforts and a list of 66 taxa was proposed as a starting point to evaluate their distribution in Mediterranean countries. Recently the Italian Ministry of Environment funded the project of check-list of Italian fungi and consequently the investigations in many regions were enlarged. In the frame of this project, data on the spatial and temporal distribution of macrofungi in Siena Province (Tuscany, C. Italy) are reported in this paper.
