• The tabs at the very top apply to the Landcare Research site, taking you to its various major sections
  • The footer at the bottom of each page also contains Landcare Research links. The links on the banner and the footer will take you off the Fungal Guide site and onto the Landcare site
  • The links at the left side of the page deal with the Fungal Guide site and move you around this site
  • As you progress through the site the 'breadcrumbs' at the top right, under the Landcare banner, show the trail you are taking, allowing you to backtrack, should you want to go back to where you came from

Fungi groups

The Simple Key page presents you with some of the major fungi groups. Clicking on these will take you to a list of Genus representing each group. Then clicking on the Genus will present you with a list of species for that Genus belonging to that group. If  you click on the Species name you will move to the NZFungi site, which will give you greater depth of data about the name, collections, literature and so forth.

Some of the species/genus can be a part of more than one group.
