Reading University has an outstanding green campus that has gained the prestigious Green Flag Award for five consecutive years. Campus biodiversity is monitored and reported on by staff and students via the Whiteknights Biodiversity Blog which lists over 1500 species identified on campus. One of our most incomplete lists is that for fungi and this year we have the opportunity to work with the Thames Valley Fungal Group to try to remedy that.
On Sunday 11th October we will be holding a UK Fungus Day foray on campus to discover what is showing and probably to add to the list of recorded species. Tweets from @botanyRNG during the event. #UoRfungi2015
