Tom May

Principal Research Scientist  

Tom May has research interests in the taxonomy, ecology and conservation of larger fungi, and in related historical, bibliographic and nomenclatural aspects. Tom is active in national and international organisations, including as a member of the International Commission on the Taxonomy of Fungi, Secretary of the Nomenclature Committee for Fungi, and Deputy Chair of Taxonomy Australia. Tom co-ordinates the fungi component of the Australian National Species List and is a Subject Editor for the Australian Journal of Taxonomy. He has published widely, including catalogue volumes in the Fungi of Australia Series, the book Wild Mushrooming, the app FunKey – Key to Agarics and more than 100 articles in refereed journals. He is the lead editor for Chapter F of the International Code of Nomenclature for algae, fungi, and plants and a co-editor of the Code. Tom has participated in several documentary films including The Giants and Follow the Rain. His contributions to science and citizen science have been recognised by award of the Nancy T. Burbidge Medal, by the Australasian Systematic Botany Society, and the Australian Natural History Medallion.
