The speeding-up of the use of molecular data does not allow a long break to all kinds of mycologists. They may sometimes feel out of step with this avalanche of results, especially since their relevance it is not always easy to judge (this also goes for the most experienced among us). As with our publications we are part of this evolution of knowledge it seemed desirable to give you an overview of the research. This research is not always easily accessible, either because it is published in journals with a pay-wall or because of the language barrier, most of the papers being in English. By means of these regular synthesises we will try to state our view on the new developments and changes, as well as their taxonomic implications.
