| Projects | Russula |


Russula is the second largest genus of Agaricales and the number of species in Finland might be even 200. The genus is taxonomically difficult and many species are still undescribed. The aim of this project is to study the taxonomy of Russula species and produce DNA barcodes for as many species as possible.
