Cup-fungus, Truffle and Ally Specialist

IUCN SSC Cup-fungus, Truffle and Ally Specialist Group promotes conservation of ascomycete fungi by raising awareness that they have vital roles as nutrient recyclers, mutualistic symbionts of animals and plants, and as checks and balances in freshwater, marine and terrestrial ecosystems and that like animals, plants and other fungi, they are endangered by climate change, habitat destruction, persecution and pollution.
