When mycologists describe new species, not all relevant information is provided (clearly enough)

Är taxonomin verkligen det moderna, reproducerbara och inkluderande vetenskapsfält som det strävar efter att vara? Denna granskning av artbeskrivningar av svampar finner många förändringar till det bättre över tiden, men den gör samtidigt en del svårsmälta observationer som manar till eftertanke kring hur vi tar fram och kommunicerar taxonomiska resultat.

Systematikdagarna 2020 inställda

Hej alla medlemmar i Svenska systematikföreningen.

Styrelsen har beslutat att systematikdagarna i höst tyvärr måste ställas in p.g.a. pandemin. Vi planerar att hålla mötet i Uppsala hösten 2021.

Årsmötet kommer att hållas via zoom i november. Jag återkommer med information om detta senare under hösten.

Ha en fin höst och undvik att smittas och att smitta andra.
