In the academic year 2019/2020, the course will be located in the centers of fungal diversity in temperate Europe, Białowieża Primeval Forest (Poland). The course will allow to the students to combine the field sampling and classical morphology based identification of fungi with analysis of DNA sequences of selected molecular markers as another method of organisms identification. Approximate plan includes also student presentations on their topics combined with lectures and workshops of recognized European mycologists.

The expanses will be partly or completely covered by a joint project of the Charles Uni. and Uni. of Warsaw. Therefore, only highly motivated and experienced students will be selected to participate on the course.
