Helpful mycological links
Click on the link title to open a new window containing that site.
The Raymond M. Fatto Herbarium at NYBG page An online source of Ray Fatto's Russula herbarium. Ray was a past president and guiding light of the NJMA.
Northeast Mycological Federation The website of a consortium of mushroom clubs of northeastern North America, of which NJMA is a member. Contains lots of mycological information, including works from Gary Lincoff and others. Lots of information about upcoming and past regional forays, collecting guidelines, and more.
MushroomObserver.org The purpose of this site is to record observations about mushrooms, help people identify mushrooms they aren’t familiar with, and expand the community around the scientific exploration of mushrooms (mycology).
NJMA's Yahoo! Group A place on the Internet for NJMA members to share mushrooming experiences and to exchange ideas. Before you can read or post to the group, you'll need to choose a user name and password for Yahoo – then it's easy to make postings and add photos, files, and mushroom links. This is a "moderated" group, meaning that anything you post is subject to sensible posting guidelines. Any misidentifications, "bad" information, or postings of questionable taste will be removed.
Rod Tulloss' Amanita website Everything you ever wanted to know about members of the genus Amanita. (Well, almost...if you want more, you need to speak with Rod himself!)
Tom Volk's Fungi Very helpful page from Associate Professor in the Department of Biology at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, where I teach courses on General Mycology.
Fungi Growing on Wood A site assembled by Gary Emberger, reflecting work he's done over the last few years to create an identification guide to wood decay fungi based on an out-of-print work by Charles Fergus called Illustrated Genera of Wood Decay Fungi. The website includes dichotomous keys, descriptions, and, for many species, quite a few photographs illustrating many diagnostic features useful for identification.
Mushroom: The Journal Comprehensive site with articles, events and guides.

The Great Morel Site An interesting site with several links dedicated mostly to morels.
MorelMania.com Sightings page Contains "unscientific" maps of the progress of morel emergence across the US each spring as reported by site users. Lots of fun if you just can't wait for those spongy "creatures" to pop their heads up!
