Good point Mike! And along the same lines there are many ongoing studies to which we have and will continue to contribute specimens such as the following:
Providing researchers with material like this also helps us leverage our sequencing budget. For that reason and to further future research I always retain a good portion of each collection to submit to the Gilbertson Mycological Herbarium. See the section entitled "Collecting for the Gilbertson" on the Scientific Committee page,
Just a note to share that Professor Rick Gaber, of the Molecular Biosciences Dept at Northwestern University sent out some requests for Schizophyllum samples that were shared with the Facebook group this last winter. I ended up sending some Schizophyllum I found along Oak Creek the following month. I am looking forward to eventually seeing what he finds out from the Schizophyllum samples he collected from nearly every state in the nation.
The contribution of AMS to the scientific understanding of fungi is an important part of the organization. I wanted to share this information with you to increase awareness about how we can continue to contribute to the study of mycology.
