Working Groups

What are the ISHAM Working Groups?

The ISHAM working groups were set up:

  • To promote specific topics within mycology
  • To increase the visibility of ISHAM and fungal diseases and related topics to external audiences, partly through scholarly publications.
  • To support the education and training of mycologists at all stages of their careers.
  • To develop non-duplicative guidelines and publish position statements on research in mycology for ISHAM members and beyond.
  • To provide a resource to ISHAM about specific topics, notably for contributing speakers and/or symposia for the 3 yearly ISHAM general meeting.

The general information and guidelines related to Working Groups can be found here.
