I am starting an edible mushroom research program, I have cloned many oysters and more from many places in NZ. I want mushroom growers to upload the progress here so I can track different ways of growing our mushrooms. People are highly interested in my cultures and this is all about to start. The research will be able to be seen by all on this site.
The big question and the problem I have is:
Is inaturalist a great place to upload all this data and photos?
Will it annoy scientists who are tracking fungi in the wild?
I feel this data will be important to understand the switch from home growers growing imported mushrooms to sending native spores out and the effect that will have on the environment. All the cultures are being sent to Landcare to store in the ICMP.
