The Sydney Fungal Studies Group Inc (SFSGI) consists of mycological and other academics, students, and many other, non-academic, but interested people of all age groups.
The Sydney Fungal Studies Group Inc. aims to advance the study of fungi at all levels, particularly the larger fungi; to educate people at all stages of skill and knowledge in the science of mycology; and to interact with groups and societies having mycological or closely related interests.
Membership is open to all, with the only requirements being that they are interested in contributing to the activities of the Group, subscribe to the aims of the Group, and that they respect the basic principles of nature conservation.
The Sydney Fungal Studies Group started in the mid 1980's as a loosely associated, non-profit group of people interested in all aspects of fungi, and with an emphasis on Australasian fungi.
The Sydney Fungal Studies Group incorporated in 2000 in order to allow it to formalise and expand its activities.
