Field Mycology & Conservation Committee

The Field Mycology & Conservation (FMC) Committee deals with all issues relating to fungal conservation, biodiversity and field-related activities.  The Committee also supports the BMS Recording Network and organises a programme of field meetings and workshops. It liaises with and advises local, national and international conservation bodies and manages the Fungal Records Database of Britain and Ireland (FRDBI).

The FMC Committee holds two meetings a year and members keep in touch as required between meetings.
