NUF gives community scientists the tools to collect specimens for science and research. Vouchered collections are a valuable resource of diversity and distribution of macrofungi that can be used for research and conservation. Observations without collections are still helpful.
SUMMER 2022 NEWS:
We DNA sequenced thirty specimens in 2021.
So far, we have documented over 1,430 observations of 269 species.
Fifty-three incredible mycophiles have helped us document the fungal biodiversity in Utah.
