Threats to fungi and fungal diversity throughout the world have prompted debates
about whether and how fungi can be conserved. Should it be the site, or the habitat,
or the host that is conserved? All of these issues are addressed in this volume, but
coverage goes beyond mere debate with constructive guidance for management of nature
in ways beneficial to fungi. Different parts of the world experience different problems and
a range of examples are presented; from Finland in the North to Kenya in the South, and
from Washington State, USA in the West to Fujian Province, China in the East. Equally
wide-ranging solutions, are put forward, from voluntary agreements, through land management
techniques, to primary legislation. Taken together, these provide useful suggestions about
how fungi can be included in conservation projects in a range of
