Abstract: This page provides basic information about the European Mycological Association (EMA). If you live in Europe and you're interested in fungi, or if you live outside Europe and are interested in European fungi, then this Association is for you. The Association was set up in September 2003 at the XIV Congress of European Mycologists, Katsiveli, Crimea, Ukraine - and its scope is broad, embracing all aspects of European mycology. Amateur and professional mycologists are equally welcome. It's also possible for organizations to join, and these can be, for example, national or local mycological societies, or companies working with fungi. The EMA evolved from Congresses of European Mycologists and has inherited their functions. Under its Constitution, future Congresses of European Mycologists will be orgainzed under its auspices. The EMA is recognized by the International Mycological Association (International Union of Biological Sciences, Section for General Mycology), and the Governing Committee of the EMA serves as the Committee for Fungi in Europe within the International Mycological Association. For the purposes of the EMA, Europe means countries of continental Europe and the Atlantic, Arctic and Mediterranean islands traditionally associated with continental Europe (including all of the Russian Federation as far east as the Urals, the Caucasus, Turkey, Cyprus, Malta, the Canary Islands, Madeira, the Azores, the British Isles, the Faroe Islands, Iceland, Spitzbergen and Novaya Zemlya), and mycology is defined as the study of fungi, with fungi encompassing all organisms of the kingdom Fungi, plus those other fungus-like organisms (downy mildews, slime moulds etc.) traditionally studied by mycologists. The language used by the EMA is English. In case of difficulties, communications may be made in any other European language, provided that an English abstract or translation is made available. E-mail and fax are recognised as valid media for communication with Members who have access to those technologies. [Information of the supplier]
