People involved in the study of Russulales:
Gerhard Weber (b. July 28th, 1939) has a general interest in fungi for more than 40 years already, but he dedicated the last 15 years almost exclusively to Russula.
He compiled a very extensive taxonomic database for this genus, including some 5600 references to pictures most of which are found on the internet. He also possesses a very complete library on Russula literature worldwide.
Gerhard's data have considerably contributed to the update of the taxonomic database on this Russulales-News website (for which we thank Gerhard here explicitely) but all this information will also be very useful for another project Gerhard is working on: a world-key to all known species of Russula.
