This program allows users to search by fungus perspective, by host perspective, and by taxonomic authorities for fungi or hosts. Once a perspective is selected the user may then enter a variety of criteria to narrow the parameters of the search. By increasing the number of criteria used in your search you can narrow the range of results that will be presented. Alternatively, you can see a listing of genus names included in the page Genus Name List; once a genus of interest is found you can see the species included for that genus by clicking on the genus name. You can also do searches by host family by using the Host Family List. Beginning with version 2 you can search by fungus order or family.
The link Names in Database will take you to a brief introduction to the nomenclature of fungi and plants, and information on how scientific names are stored and retrieved in this database.
