The mycological research in Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug – Yugra stems from isolated studies in the beginning of the 20th century, but regular and systematic research dates back to the 70-80s. Over the following decades several dozens of researches worked in the area and a total of  about 150 scientific works were published.

Fungal Records Database of Yugra (FReDY) is an attempt to summarize the results of these studies. Presently, the database includes over 14 000 of fungal records in the region and adjacent areas, reported from 72 scientific publications.

According to the database summary report, there are currently about 2500 species identified from finds in Yugra. The richest groups are the Agaricoid basidiomycetes (31%), Lichens (33%) and Aphyllophoroid basidiomycetes (19%). The less studied groups are the Ascomycetes (8%), Myxomycetes (3%), Heterobasidiomycetous fungi (<1%), and Yeasts <1%).

The FReDY database includes 23 fields describing species name, publication source, herbarium number, data of collection, geography, vegetation, substrate, and some other ecological features. We will keep developing it into a complex relational database according to the existing biological database standards.
