Strategic Focus

To contribute to knowledge on Colombia’s microbiota by studying different ecosystems, especially unexplored ones, from the perspective of mycology. Thus, we seek to produce information related to Colombia’s microbiota taxonomy, biology, ecology (including periodicity, frequency, and fluctuations), uses, geographical distribution, among others. The information obtained is used to raise awareness in society with regard to the role played by fungi in the health, maintenance, sustainability, and conservation of various ecosystems.

Research Areas and Topics

  • Fungal Conservation.
  • Ethnomycology.
  • Fungal ecology.
  • Mycorrhizae.
  • Macrofungi taxonomy.
