One response to “Cortinarius ceskae”

  1. Daniel Mosquin

    And I’ll add a few more words from Adolf:

    Observatory Hill collections of several species have been directly cited (or referred to by their GenBank numbers) in the original descriptions of some of the following species: New and Interesting Species from Observatory Hill.

    A majority of the Observatory Hill collections were donated to the UBC herbarium where the collections have been already accessioned or are waiting for being accessioned. Many of those collections have been already included in the UBC Fungi Herbarium database and mirrored in the Consortium of the Pacific Northwest Herbaria.

    A “virtual herbarium” has been created in Mushroom Observer. It contains photos, microphotos, and drawings of about one third of all our Observatory Hill specimens. Partial results of the survey have been summarized in annual reports that have been deposited on the GOERT web site.

    This project was partially supported by the Herzberg Institute of Astrophysics, GOERT (Garry Oak Ecosystem Restoration Team), and private donors. Cataloguing of the collections has been supported by the Canadian Wildlife Service. Our special thanks go to Dr. Paul Feldman, HIA astronomer, who initiated this project and provided all the help we needed.
