Aim of the project

Indexing microfungus specimens and digitizing microscopic specimens.

Description of the project

The current research in the Mycological Herbarium focuses on rust fungi, a group of microfungi that are of major economic importance as plant parasites. With more than 57,000 specimens, they are well represented in the collection. Within the scope of the project, these specimens are being recorded digitally and photographs of the microscopic type specimens taken.

The results of the project are published via a catalogue in E-Pics.
