Abstract

   From the sampling of NSTDA researchers, 592 mushroom samples were found, 52% classified and found that there were 144 different types according to biomolecular data. 30 percent ratio of the total number The classification is from samples collected between July and September 2020, during which time the government eased travel. This enabled the researchers to successfully carry out this activity with 100 species of targets and the pure mushroom cultures and mushroom samples still need to be studied in order to classify and find its potential for future applications.

Project content

   Activities are divided into 2 main activities which are Researchers from NSTDA participated in the fieldwork with the community. And the government sector to explore, collect samples and study biological resources together Since the beginning of the year 63, there was a virus outbreak, blocking travel and having to adjust the action plan when the Office of the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has an employment program for victims of the virus outbreak. Causing researchers, NSTDA, biological resource bank Gather a discussion group with the community. Employment of 13 people in two sub-districts, Tung Wa and Ragua, is the mainstay of the study with NSTDA researchers to bring knowledge, methods of education and development, stored and transmitted locally.

   It was found that this activity resulted in more than 300 data collection and utilization of that resource. However, there was less data on utilization, showing that the community knew very little of the fungus. But when the community understands how to study Such as observing the rise Cohabitation between organisms Their relevance and role in nature To understand the ecosystem And there is a higher need for conservation and exploration Until registering a travel group to see the forest to find mushrooms along with fossils Which is another part to increase tourism activities It was found that tourism advocates had to find the strength of the area other than the fossils. Other interesting resources are also available, such as glow mushrooms, cup mushrooms, coral mushrooms, etc. These mushrooms can add volumes and beautify the rainy season or At the end of the rainy season which is suitable for traveling
