Fungi are vital and deliver essential services for a healthy ecosystem. They are in fact the giants in the natural ecosystems.

Anyone with an interest in fungi is welcome to join the Adelaide Fungal Studies Group (AFSG ) and no experience is required. Within the group there is always someone to share their knowledge. The information from fungi forays provides valuable information enabling and furthering the understanding of fungi.

Pam Catcheside started the AFSG in 2001 and Pam and the AFSG have achieved much over the past 20 years.
