The U.S. National Science Foundation and iDigBio are required to collect information on use of digitized collections-based specimen data. Please help us meet this requirement every time you use this search portal. Sustainability of the national digitization effort depends on evidence of data use! Maybe later.

From Recordset

The fungal collections of the College of Environmental Science and Forestry of the State University of New York emphasize wood decay fungi and fungi of the northeastern U.S. There are about 15,000 specimens pertinent to this project, including vouchers for the studies of Josiah Lowe (1938-1993) and his students (including Robert L. Gilbertson and M. J. Larsen). Based on these collections over 75 systematic papers were published (e.g. Lowe, 1963, 1975; Larsen, 1968). SYRF specimens have not yet been digitized, but the data generated by this project, will be maintained by SYRF using appropriate software. This project will not only create an electronic version of the data stored in the herbarium, but also affords the opportunity for an advanced undergraduate student or graduate student to learn digitization techniques.
