Collection of Forest Fungi

A fruiting body survey of fungi observed within an old-growth remnant forest will be used to generate a list of genera and species for the site. The image to the right shows Aaron D. Brown collecting fungal specimens from permanent sampling plot A02 during the fall 2009 season. Specimens are photographed, field characteristics recorded, and then placed into collection bags for short transport to lab. Final macro/micro photography of characteristics and identification of specimen completed in the laboratory.
