DescriptionThe Center for Forest Mycology Research (CFMR), U.S. Forest Service, Northern Research Station, Madison, WI, is home to the world's largest collection of wood-inhabiting fungi. These collections constitute a library of the fungal kingdom that is used by researchers thoughout the world. The CFMR collections have many practical uses that have improved the lives of Americans directly and indirectly over the past century in many ways. The CFMR and its collections contribute to tools to: identify and manage devastating fungal diseases of trees and wildlife, understand and maintain endangered wildlife populations that rely on fungi, provide fungal cultures to identify important pharmaceuticals and biotechnological processes, and develop sustainable forest management guidelines forbioenergy harvests from forests.
