A remarkable increase in knowledge of fungal biodiversity in Italy has occurred in the last five years. The authors reportup-to-date numbers of fungi (Basidiomycota and Ascomycota) by regions together with distributional and ecological data onhypogeous fungi. Specific case studies such as alpine fungi, orchid mycorrhizas symbionts, invasive species, and the use ofmacrofungi as food by red squirrels are analyzed. In situ conservation strategies carried out on target species and/ortaxonomic groups are also indicated.
