Environmental destructions have occurred worldwide and have been a major concern to living entities.

Particularly, some disappearing species of higher plants and animals have routinely been news sources, but microorganisms including fungi have been neglected, although their significance has been emphasized in relation to degradation of natural resources, as well as to their movement and relocation. Biodiversity problems include qualitative and quantitative aspects and their influences to our life. Qualitatively it is essential to know as many fungal species as possible.
