Giuliana Furci

Executive Director / Founder of Fundacion Fungi, Giuliana Maria Furci George-Nascimento has been devoted to mycology since 1999. Her inescapable drive to study Chile's fungi has led her to travel the country looking for fungal fruit bodies in different environments and ecosystems. In 2007 she published "Fungi Austral - Field Guide to the Outstanding Fungi of Chile", and later, in 2013, [“Fungi of Chile, the Field Guide”] which is currently the only book on Chilean Fungi with pictures of its species in their natural habitats. She has contributed to various publications such as "Chilean Biodiversity, Heritage and Challenges" (CONAMA, 2006 and 2008) and "Microforests of Altos de Cantillana" (FPA, 2013).
