The diversity of Cortinarius (Basidiomycota, Agaricales)
in boreal coniferous forests

Cortinarius is taxonomically difficult and the most species rich genus of the Agaricales with a worldwide distribution. Our aim is to study the taxonomy, ecology and distribution of boreal Cortinarius species in North American coniferous forests and compare the species composition with our existing European material from similar habitats. DNA barcodes will be produced for all of the studied species.
