- CONTENTS: This paper, based on Norvell's presentation at
the 1994 Corvallis conference, presents the context, objectives,
methods and rationale, unique considerations, current status,
and references pertinent to the Oregon Mycological Society's
long-term experimental study designed to assess the impact
of sporocarp removal upon chanterelle abundance and biomass.

- The agaric genus Phaeocollybia in western North America:
New Species. Abstract in Inoculum
- ABSTRACT: Phenetic analyses of molecular, morphological,
and ecological data sets support the existence of several
new Phaeocollybia species in British Columbia, Washington,
Oregon, and California. Co-migrating fragments produced by
digesting PCR-amplified DNA from 160 representative basidiomes
with 9 enzymes comprised a RFLP-based character set. Macro-
and microcharacters - drawn from both recent collections and
published descriptions of 62 known species - and environmental
characters based on recent field observations were scored,
coded, and respectively grouped into morphological and ecological
sets. The three subset trees were then compared and pruned.
Results from cluster and multivariate analyses of a combined
character set support the existence of 25-30 PNW species.
Types for 8 new species have been selected from cluster-centers,
and circumscriptions of all PNW taxa have been expanded to
represent a full intraspecific continuum. Morphologically
distinct new species have continued to be discovered, with
each new field season, implying the scope of this distinctive
once "small" genus will continue to expand. (See also Projects:

- Is Cantharellus formosus being commercially harvested?
Abstract in Inoculum
- CONTENTS: Cantharellus formosus was described by
EJH Corner in 1966 from a collection made on Vancouver Island,
British Columbia, Canada in 1938. Subsequent treatment of
the species has been checkered. it has been listed both as
a possibly rare, old-growth forest indicator species in Forest
Ecosystem Management Team (FEMAT) reports, and as a commercially
harvested chanterelle in western North America. In 1995 the
type locality was pinpointed, fresh topotype specimens were
obtained, and molecular analyses using RFLP data were conducted.
Comparison of topotype specimens with commercially harvested
chanterelles in Canada and the Pacific Northwest USA and chanterelles
from the pioneering Oregon Mycological Society's Chanterelle
Study Plots will be given in a status report on this research.
