Mycology is the branch of science that studies fungi . A scientist who studies mycology is called a mycologist. Mycology includes the taxonomy of fungi, their genetics, their medicinal uses, their ecology, and so forth. There's Mycological Society of America that is a good source for more information as well as the mycology net, which links to many other resources.
