Inventory and functional diversity of the mushrooms of the experimental station José Celestino Mutis, La Vega - Cundinamarca

Project: Research project

Project Details


Given that in Colombia there is a lack of information on the state of fungal biodiversity, the initiative to carry out the fungal inventory of the José Celestino Mutis experimental station arose, with the aim of knowing part of our fungal diversity and their ecosystemic roles. The José Celestino Mutis Experimental Station is located at the foot of the Eastern Cordillera at an altitude of 1300 meters above sea level. This is a privileged location since it allows the presence of mountain forest mushrooms from the Cordillera and lowland forest from the Magdalena River valley. For this reason it is expected that the diversity of mushrooms in this zone will be high since it could be considered a transition or ecotone zone between mountain forests and lowland forests.
