Fungi identification and compilation of a species list for Zuka Private Game Reserve

Project objectives and aims

This project entails the identification and mapping of mushroom populations encountered on the reserve, as well as the documentation and classification of species found. Once various thorough surveys have been completed over a period of time and across various seasons, a species list will be compiled for Zuka Private Game Reserve and potentially for the Munywana. Any potentially new species discovered will be evaluated and approved by mycologists and taxonomists in due course.

1. Workshop with specialist
2. Field rangers and conservation team will document the species find on property

Expected outcomes

  • Explicit list of mushroom species
