Waxcap-grasslands – an assessment of English sites (ENRR555)

Waxcap-grassland fungi are of conservation interest as indicators of semi-natural, mycologically-rich unimproved grasslands, a habitat seriously threatened throughout the UK and Europe. The primary aims of this project have been a) to source and collate distribution data for all the indicator waxcap-grassland species in England, and b) to use this data to produce a preliminary list of the most important English grasslands known to date. This, together with the dataset of nearly 20,000 records will for the first time enable well-informed decisions to be made on appropriate site protection.
