The fungi edition features Luisa Torres interview with Dr. Teresa Iturriaga and Robert Dirig of Cornell Plant Pathology Herbarium. They discussed the collection of preserved fungi samples, photos of mushrooms and lichens and pathologic specimen. This organization has been at Cornell University since the 1800s.
