DescriptionSince the summer of 1996, a project has been underway at the University of Wisconsin-Madison,Dept. of Plant Pathology, to determine how different forest management regimes can affect the diversity of fungi found in northern hardwood forests. This report is an introduction to this project's goals, objectives and methods. A particular group of fungi, the wood-inhabiting polyporoid and corticioid fungi (commonly known as the polypores and the crust fungi), was chosen for this project. To date, fruiting bodies have been sampled for two years in forest stands in northern Wisconsin and the adjacent upper peninsula of Michigan. Data analysis has begun in earnest only within the last year, so future reports will address the specific results of these investigations.
