Fungi play critical roles in the functioning of healthy ecosystems, driving nutrient cycling, providing food for a variety of wildlife, maintaining the health of plants and storing carbon in soils. However fungi are one of the least studied groups of organisms in Australia. The Mycology Research Project aims to train citizen scientists to study, research and contribute data on Queensland fungi; to raise awareness about the benefits of mycology (the studying of fungi); and make this science easily accessible to the Queensland community.
