”As a mycological society, we strive to promote understanding and appreciation of the diversity of fungi. In this sense, we are very pleased with the excellent cooperation we have been able to establish with MyPilz.
In the course of our collaboration, we have entrusted MyPilz with a wide variety of fungal samples from our collections and herbaria for identification. MyPilz has professionally analysed these samples using DNA fingerprinting methods, which has greatly enriched our knowledge of the specific species in our collections.
Moreover, we are united by a common vision - the protection of fungi and their natural habitats. Our cooperation is based on the common endeavour to raise awareness of the roles that fungi play in our ecosystems. Furthermore, we pursue the common goal of researching and promoting the local diversity of mushrooms in Austria. Thus, our cooperation stands for the preservation and promotion of the fascination for Austria's mushrooms.Ao. Univ.-Prof. Mag. Dr. Irmgard GreilhuberPresident of the Austrian Mycological Society
