People involved in the study of Russulales:
Slavo is currently working on Russula sect. Xerampelinae - nomenclature, taxonomy, morphometric studies. He is going to continue in taxonomy revision of other groups of Russula in Europe after completing his study on Xerampelinae. He is also working on an important revision of North American Russulae together with Bart Buyck.
At the same time he is exploring the biodiversity of all agarics in Slovakia, through his own excursions and his work on the checklist of fungi of Slovakia.
Slavomir has recently joined the Russulales News team and is actively working to complete the database of Russula names and descriptions. Welcome aboard!
