18786146_01140005_cov150h.gifFungal Biology is the Society's flagship publication, an international scientific journal devoted to many aspects of fungal biology including biochemistry, biodeterioration, biotechnology, cell biology, developmental biology, disease control, ecology, environment, evolution, fungal physiology, genetics, genomics, geomycology, insect pathology, medical mycology, molecular genetics, mutualistic interactions, physiology, plant pathology, secondary metabolites, taxonomy and systematics, and techniques.



 Fungal_Ecology_170.jpgFungal Ecology is the first scientific journal to specialize in fungal ecology. The scope of the journal is broad, and publishes articles on all aspects of fungal ecology, including the following (not exclusive): population dynamics; adaptation; evolution; role in ecosystem functioning, nutrient cycling, decomposition, carbon allocation; ecophysiology; intra- and inter-specific mycelial interactions, fungus-plant (pathogens, mycorrhizas, lichens, endophytes), fungus-invertebrate and fungus-microbe interaction; genomics and (evolutionary) genetics; conservation and biodiversity; remote sensing; bioremediation and biodegradation; quantitative and computational aspects - modelling, indicators, complexity, informatics.


 Fungal_Biology_Reviews_170.jpgFungal Biology Reviews was launched in 2007 and is the first journal to focus on high quality reviews in fungal biology. The journal aims to publish reviews from all fields of fungal biology, whether fundamental or applied, including fungal diversity, ecology, evolution, physiology and ecophysiology, biochemistry, genetics and molecular biology, cell biology, interactions (symbiosis, pathogenesis etc), environmental aspects, biotechnology and taxonomy. It covers all organisms that have either historically or recently been recognized as fungi, including lichen-fungi, microsporidia, oomycetes, slime moulds, straminipiles, and yeasts.



Field_Mycology_113.jpgField Mycology was launched in 2000 and since then has provided a high quality publication for field mycologists and conservationists. It aims to produce articles for both the beginner and the knowledgeable field mycologists. Although the articles are principally about British fungi it includes articles concerning many other countries of the  world. The articles are accompanied by high quality photographs often of poorly documented species.





Electronic Journals Internet access to the full text of all journals is available to members at a special rate which includes all past issues of the previous journals. Articles published from Volume 1, Issue 1 are available for the following titles:

  • Fungal Biology (formerly Mycological Research)
  • Fungal Biology Reviews
  • Fungal Ecology
  • Field Mycology
  • The Mycologist – Back-Files
  • Transactions of the British Mycological Society – Back-Files
