THIS PAGE PROVIDES A BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE SPECIMEN PAGE LAYOUT AND FEATURES.
Specimen pages are organized as follows:
Specimen name and authority
(Pers. ex Wall.) Pat.
The specimens have been identified to the best of our ability, using all available resources. We do not claim to be experts for all groups of fungi, and realize our limitations. We welcome comments and questions regarding our identification of specimens. Please leave a message in our

Basidiomycota: Basidiomycetes: Ganodermatales: Ganodermataceae:
These pages are intended for a broad audience. Not everyone visiting these pages will have the same needs or views with respect to fungal taxonomy. For convention, we have listed the taxonomic information for each specimen as it appears in
Ainsworth and Bisby's Dictionary of the Fungi, 8th Edition.
We have, however, chosen to recognize the classes Hyphomycetes, Coelomycetes, and Agonomycetes with accompanying ordinal and familial taxa for the "mitosporic fungi."
For more taxonomic information we recommend the
ARS-USDA Systematic Botany and Mycology Laboratory Fungal Databases

The National Center for Biotechnology Information Taxonomy Homepage

; Locality Name: Lindsay-Parsons Biodiversity Preserve; Township: West Danby, Tompkins Co.; State: NY; Elevation: 925 ft.-1000 ft.; Loc Latitude: 42°18'55"N; Loc Longitude: 76°30'53"W
These data are exported directly to the specimen pages from the CCFB databases. We use the
Biodiversity Database Manager software, developed by
Robert K. Colwell
at the University of Connecticut.
Included are the following:
CCFB Specimen Code
and the name of the individual(s)
who identified the specimen.
Storage information -
(Slant/-80°C Freezer/Herbarium/dH2O.) We are not prepared to loan specimens at this time.
The collector and date of collection.
The Biodiversity Preserve has been subdivided into 31 "
," based on topography, a survey of soil types on the preserve, and vegetative cover. For each specimen, the dominant "Soil type" for the collecting sector is listed. The "Source" entry indicates the substrate on which the specimen was found. The "Locality Code" names the sector in which the specimen was collected, and is linked to a sector map page which locates the sector on the Preserve, describing the geography and ecology of that sector. For example, in this entry,
is linked to its appropriate sector map page.
This information will vary for each of our databases. All specimens from the Biodiversity Project Database include locality data based on each individual collecting sector. The same data can be found on the individual sector map pages.

-Link to GenBank data:
We have searched the NCBI Nucleotide Browser for each entry in our database. This link will take you to the results of that search for a given specimen. If our search returned no results, you will be taken directly to the NCBI Nucleotide Browser page, where you may try your own search.
This link will take you to a list of references, organized at the generic level, for each specimen.
Not every link on every specimen page will be active. Having established the infrastructure of this site and our databases, we intend to build on each entry as data becomes available. Eventually, we hope each page will be complete. As we make new collections, we expect to update old and generate new specimen pages on a regular basis.

We feel that an effective search feature is essential for successful access to all the information housed in our databases. We have chosen to include the
search engine on each specimen page. We researched a number of possibilities, and found this tool to be fast and reliable. We are able to control when our site is indexed; reindexing the site whenever updates are made. Therefore, searches will always reflect the current status of the CCFB databases and web site.
