Dear folks:
        I am preparing an article discussing the integration of
non-professional mycologist/mushroom hunters into formal research programs,
particularly in fungal biodiversity surveys.  If you know of major
contributions by individuals or amateur organizations to mycological
research, from anywhere in the world, I would be very grateful if you would
inform me.  Please respond to me directly, and I will post a summary at a
future time.  Oh, I am already aware of the Oregon Mycological Association's
chantarelle study, and of the works reported by Eef Arnolds in the Netherlands.
        Thanks much in advance,

Jack
