VolterraNews MycoRestore

At the end of October 2020, IPSP-CNR Staff visited the integral natural reserve of Sasso Fratino (National Park of Foreste Casentinesi, Monte Falterona e Campigna, Tuscany) together with around 25 Volunteers of the European Solidarity Corps (LIFE ESC360; LIFE17/ESC/IT/000001) and Carabinieri Forestali Biodiversity Group of Pratovecchio to evaluate the fungal biodiversity in an environment where man has not been admitted since 1959 (and where the forest has been untouched for centuries in some parts) and compare with those of LIFE MycoRestore demonstration area. It was a very educational networking activity.
