About "Fungus Collections at Staatliches Museum für Naturkunde Karlsruhe (Herbarium KR)"



The Collection

Until 2003 the fungus collections at Staatliches Museum für Naturkunde Karlsruhe (SMNK) comprised around 11,800 specimens including the fungus herbarium of H. W. Stoll (1832–1917). With this date Dr. Markus Scholler started his work as mycologist and curator at SMNK. He enlarged the collections focusing on Germany (all groups of fungi) and northern hemisphere plant parasitic microfungi, particularly rust fungi. Nowadays, the SMNK fungus collections comprise more than 45,000 specimens and label data are mostly databased. Among the around 30,000 digitalised specimens, nearly all are georeferenced. The collections comprise nearly 200 types. Important collections include those of E. Bethel (1863–1925), W. Brandenburger (1929–2005), M. Enderle, H. Jage, L. Krieglsteiner, D. Laber, O. Müller (1890–1953), H. Neubert (1935–2003; only macrofungi), M. Scholler, L. Schrimpl and H. Staub/U. Sauter.
