Catalog of Fungal Collections|
from the Herbarium of Roger D. Goos
Dr. Roger D. Goos, Professor Emeritus of Botany at the University
of Rhode Island, donated his fungal herbarium to The New York Botanical
Garden in 1995. Dr. Goos received his M.S. and Ph.D. in mycology from the
University of Iowa under the supervision
of George W. Martin and Constantine J. Alexopoulos respectively. Throughout
his career, his research was focused on helicosporous Hyphomycetes, a group
characterized by a coiled conidia, and the Meliolales. He also documented
the mushrooms of Rhode Island.
The Garden is very pleased to have incorporated Dr. Goos' herbarium into ours. These specimens have been cataloged into our electronic database and are now available for searching on the World Wide Web.
