Rust fungus specimens online
"Zurich Herbaria (external link)", the combined herbaria of ETH Zurich and the University of Zurich, keep around a million fungi. With almost 60,000 specimens from all over the world, the rust fungi (Uredinales) are one of the most important sub-collections.
Scans of these herbarium labels with complete, original information have now been uploaded into an image catalogue on ETH E-Pics.
Scientists and anyone else who is interested can browse the image catalogue and identify rust fungus specimens that are important for their research. These can be loaned from the herbarium for study purposes.
