University of Tennessee, Chattanooga (UCHT-F)

The Fungarium (UCHT-F) at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga contains approximately 3800 specimens consisting mainly of macrofungi and lichens. Many of the accessions are the result of over two decades of collection by Dr. J. Hill Craddock and his mycology students. With a geographic emphasis on Hamilton county Tennessee and the adjacent counties of Georgia and Alabama, UCHT-F and its associated data provide an opportunity to perform biological surveys and other research on the fungal taxa of the Southeast. There are focused collections on the Tennessee River Gorge, the Lula Lake Land Trust, Reflection Riding Arboretum, Cloudland Canyon State Park, and other natural areas of the Cumberland Uplands. The specimens of the Fungarium can be used to further our understanding of the myriad fungal species that occur in the region.
