Due to length, the Indiana fungal checklist will be published in three parts: macrofungi (e.g., bracket fungi, mushrooms, and puffballs), microfungi (e.g., molds and rusts), and lichenized fungi (i.e., lichens) of Indiana.
The molecular approach using the rDNA-ITS region firmly verify the different macrofungi in the selected areas.
Many molecules synthesized by macrofungi, such as polysaccharides, proteins, fats, minerals, glycosides, alkaloids, volatile oils, terpenoids, tocopherols, phenolics, flavonoids, carotenoids, folates, lectins, enzymes and organic acids in general are known to be bioactive, and these compounds are found in different biological parts of edible mushrooms.

The purpose of this study was: (1) to provide initial characterization of fungal biodiversity at both Brownfield and Trelease Woods, including estimates of taxon richness; (2) to determine if fungal assemblages present both within and between Brownfield and Trelease Woods are significantly different; (3) to determine which taxa of macrofungi are most informative in characterizing macrofungal assemblages at both sites; (4) to evaluate the effects of seasonality on the fungal communities; (5) to determine which site-specific biotic factors correspond most strongly with the fungal assemblages at both sites; and (6) to compare the fungal communities at Brownfield and Trelease woods to other known studies of fungal diversity.
