Volume 28 Issue 1   20 January 2020
Macrofungi play an irreplaceable role in the ecosystem and are closely related to human life. In this issue, we introduce the assessment progress of the first China’s red list of macrofungi. From the left to the right, from the top to the bottom, pictures presented in the cover are six threatened fungi species: Naematelia aurantialba, Ophiocordyceps sinensis, Hypsizygus marmoreus, Hericium erinaceus, Taiwanofungus camphoratus, and Umbilicaria esculenta. The habitats of these edible and medicinal fungi have been under threat due to climate change and human activities. Sufficient attention and necessary actions are needed to protect the resources and diversity of macrofungi. (Designed by Ke Wang and Yijian Yao.
