Ecoflora site can be investigated by plant species - then associated fungi (mainly Ellis + Ellis) are given saying what part of plant affected

Hi Mark, and welcome to the UK Fungi forums.

That's a useful bit of info! - A website that I wasn't previously aware of. It will definitely come in handy.


Similarly, the FRDBI can be searched by "Associated organism".

By typing in the name of a plant / host species, the database will return any fungi (not only rusts/smuts, etc.) with which the searched for host species has been recorded:-

Regards,
Mike.
Common sense is not so common.

I've been trying to find a database of plants with locations, similar to the frdbi or CATE, but can only find the NBN Gateway which I find impossible to use. The map of species, in this case Salix triandra shows two squares over Pembrokeshire, but when I click on list of sites, it returns organisations, like Wildlife Trusts etc, without telling you which one holds the records in question. I chose Watsonian vice county (Pembrokeshire) and downoaded an empty csv file. There has to be a better way!

You probably already know but possibly http://www.wwbic.org.uk/ can help? Not sure how available records are from them.

Yes, but it's a paid service, and each request involves filling a 4 page form. The frdbi is a lot easier :)

Also worth noting that David Harries with his Pembrokeshire Fungus Recording Network also has regular articles on rusts in his quarterly Newsletter. Adam has apparently re-jigged the website? so I don't know the correct link at present. Can you help me out please Adam?
