Title : Diversity of edible and inedible macrofungi in Turgo tropical forest ecosystem Mount Merapi national par


The macrofungi exploration in Turgo tropical forest ecosystem of Mount Merapi National Park aimed to document the diversity and distribution of edible and inedible macrofungi in that region. Macrofungi sampling was distinguished by different forest elevations ie Turgo forest, Tritis forest, and Bingungan forest using adaptive sampling method of plot making. Data collection was conducted in May-June where the month is categorized as the wettest month in Turgo area. The total number of macrofungi obtained 133 specimens, in the Turgo forest found 48 species, in the forest Bingungan got 36 species and in the forest Tritis got 49 species. Species with a high level of macrofungi diversity based on the Shannon-Weiner index is owned by Tritis forest with the lowest elevation among the three is 2.521 followed by the Bingungan forest with an index value of 2.51 and the last of the Turgo forest is worth the index of 2.01 which means the three tracks have a moderate-high level of diversity. Comparing similarity between the three tracks based on the Sorenson index value found that the three tracks have a much different similarity. Judging from the important values, the highest value morphogroups are owned by macrofungi agarics group with 82% -169% value, followed by other groups ie jelly, polypore, cup, club, coral, and tooth which are calculated based on relative frequency and relative density values. Found 8 species that are edible, 12 species are inedible 6 species are medicinal 106 still remaining unknown.
