State University of New York College at Cortland (CORT)

The Herbarium of the State University of New York College at Cortland (CORT) has about 24,000 collections, half of which are macrofungi. Plant collections date back to 1890 with the main holdings accessioned by Dr. Eugene C. Waldbauer and his students in the late 1960’s to late 1990’s. Macrofungal collections were first accessioned in 1980 by Dr. Timothy J. Baroni and his students and continue to be the bulk of the newly added collections to the herbarium. Macrofungi (Basidiomycetes and Ascomycetes) of Upstate New York, and especially the Adirondack Park, are well represented, with collections also from the Southeastern United States, the Gulf Coastal States and California. Collections from Europe (mainly from the Alps), the Greater and Lesser Antilles (Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Jamaica, St. John USVI, Trinidad), Central America (Belize and Costa Rica), South America (Argentina, Colombia and Venezuela), Mexico and to a lesser extent Thailand and Tasmania are also important components of the research materials curated at Cortland.
