An introduction to poroide fungi

8. Mycogeography

The distribution of species treated in this book has been based on reports in floras, books and many scientific papers. Further, numerous friends and colleagues have helped with information and have read parts of the manuscript. However, with so many species scattered over such a large area, inevitably omissions and errors have crept in. We are of course responsible for such errors and would be grateful to be made aware of new information. 


Below we have listed by country, some books and persons consulted in connection with the distribution for each species. However, it is clear that new data inevitably will be added as more collecting is done, especially in many of the countries in eastern Europe. Thus the data given in connection with the distribution of each species have to be treated with care.
