Yes and no…. My collections are from the sustainable forestry project where I live, which is a part of the Institute of Ecotechnics. Also I lead groups of Earthwatch volunteers here several times a year making collections, photographing, and describing fungi. However this is largely a personal project.

Gorgeous photos!

Welcome to Mushroomobserver.

Can I ask if you made these collections (and microphotos, etc) as part of an institution-affiliated academic project?
