The 2023 Continental Mycoblitz is open to anyone who is willing to make scientifically valuable collections of mushrooms – including photography, field notes, and submitting a dried specimen. Any individual or organization can submit their most unique/interesting/exciting collections from the foray week to the project. Mycologists and foray partners will examine each collection and will perform DNA sequencing on thousands of the specimens that are submitted.
For general information about the Mycoblitz see: https://mycota.com/2023-continental-mycoblitz/
Mycologists in the three Maritime Provinces will coordinate the Mycoblitz efforts in our region, to try sequence over 1,000 collections of mushrooms from New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.
If you are located in NS please contact Sean Haughian Curator of Botany at the Nova Scotia Museum (firstname.lastname@example.org) to get more detailed information about collecting and documenting mushrooms for the Continental Mycoblitz.
There will be another Fall Mycoblitz on October 13-22
