Microfungi Collection to Be Digitized

Cornell will digitize its microfungi collection. “Microfungi are small molds, soil and water fungi, and Cornell holds more than 100,000 dried specimens in the Cornell Plant Pathology Herbarium, a research collection of 400,000 preserved fungi and other organisms that cause plant diseases.” It’s expected that digitizing will take about a year and will start this fall (which I guess means about now.)
