What is C.E.M.M.?

The European Confederation of Mediterranean Mycology (C.E.M.M.) was found in January 1993 by three Federations of mycological societies:
- A.M.B. (Associazione Micologica Bresadola), Italy. 
-.F.A.M.M. (Féderation des Associations Mycologiques Méditérranéennes), France. 
-.S.C.M. (Societat Catalana de Mycologia). Catalonia-Spain.

The U.M.I. ( Unione Mycologica Italiana) Italy joined in 1995 and the AMB left the Confederation in January 2006.
In 2001 the GrupoMixológico Galego (GMG) (Galicia, Spain) and the Associaçao Micologica "A Pantorra" (Portugal) joined the Confederation as Associative Members and in 2002 the the Societat Micològica Valenciana (SOMIVAL) did the same.
The Asociación Botánica y Micológica de Jaén (A.B.M.J.) joined as an Associative member in 2009.
In 2010, the "Federación de Asociaciones Micológicas de Castilla y León" (FAMCA) joined the CEMM and the "Norges Sopp-Og Nyttevesktforbund" (N.S.N.F.) joined also the Confederation as an Associate.
In March 2011 the FAMCAL left the Confederaration.

The aims of the C.E.M.M. are the study of the fungi of the Mediterranean region (flora, chorology, taxonomy, nomenclature, ecology, toxicology, legislation, etc.), the reprinting of classical mycological books now out of print, and the propagation amongst a broad spectrum of natural sciences followers of all this mycological information. The confederated mycological groups owns a wealth of books, periodics, herbaria and other scientific facilities that are offered to its associates for scientific, didactic or natural sciences (including playful and gastronomic) purposes.
This confederation, which groups more than 6,000 mycologists, organizes an annual conference called "European Conference on Mediterranean Mycology" and carries out an activity aimed at publishing reprints of fundamental mycological works, now out of print, and unpublished works such as the recent "Compléments à la flore des Champignons du Maroc Supérieurs de Malençon G. et R. Bertault" published in September 2009.

Federations and Associate Members

Federations and Associate Members of the CEMM are made by people who, either as a hobby or your profession, wish to deepen their mycological knowledge.
Its aims are to promote greater ecological culture, in order to understand and conserve the ecosystems, by studying the fungi, including the development of various initiatives in schools, promoting scientific research, the adequacy of mycological legislation both locally and nationally and internationally, and health education to prevent accidental intoxications.
The Federations and Associations are also didactic documentation centers, and their scientific libraries are available to its partners.
We also wish to promote initiatives, collaborating with Institutions and Associations that pursue the same goals.
