This checklist is based on collections made on many excursions but fungi are so diverse that there there are many other species in the preserve that have not yet been collected. Use the "Specimens" link in the banner for making searches for specimens. This link will enable accessing collections of a specific collector, a given species, from a certain trail, gathered in June, etc. Specimen vouchers of the species inventoried are archived in the Steere Herbarium of The New York Botanical Garden.
To generate a list of fungi collected in the preserve, use the "Family Checklist" link just above this paragraph. Clicking on the species name in a fungal family will generate information associated with the specimens gathered of that species. Field images are usually attached to the record. Although there has been great advances in the classification of fungi, there are many relationships that are still not known. In making the fungal database, the family name assigned to it by the database was accepted.
