Sydowia is a biannual peer-reviewed scientific journal covering the study of fungi, including their taxonomy, systematics, evolution, structure, development, ecology, pathology in plants, animals, and humans, and biotechnological applications. It is published by Verlag Ferdinand Berger & Söhne. Its editor in chief is Irmgard Krisai-Greilhuber.[1]


The journal was originally established in 1903 under the title Annales Mycologici by founding editor Hans Sydow.[2] It was continued as Annales mycologici, series II and retitled with the prefix Sydowia in Sydow's honour following his death in 1946. Sydowia was edited by Franz Petrak from 1947 until his death in 1973.[3] Egon Horak succeeded him until 1989.[4] Orlando Petrini took over from 1989 to 1996 and Liliane Petrini until 2004.[5]

Sydowia was published bimonthly from 1947 and biannually since 1992. Now published in English, earlier volumes included papers in English, French, German, Italian, Latin, and Spanish.[2]

Volumes since 2012 are available online.[6] Volumes 1 to 30 are freely available online.[7]
