Project: The Fungal Collection at GLM

Complete electronic database coverage of the mycological collections in the herbarium Görlitz (GLM) and presentation of the data on the Internet

The herbarium in Görlitz has at present 45,000 vouchers covered in a locally situated database (Eumycota, non-lichenized, mainly of East German geographic origin, collections from the 2nd half of the 20th century to present). These data will be transferred into the Diversity Workbench module DiversityCollection. Further 3,000–5,000 vouchers are to be entered into the database, all collections will be georeferenced and the data prepared for online access.
