Fungal Collections at the Botanische Staatssammlung München (M)

The Botanische Staatssammlung München is part of the Staatliche Naturwissenschaftliche Sammlungen Bayerns (acronym SNSB, that is, the Bavarian Natural History Collections). It offers research facilities and expert advice on plants and fungi based on a collection of 3.4 million herbarium specimens. These specimens represent the holdings of two intercalated herbaria, that of the Botanische Staatssammlung (acronym M) with 3.2 million and that of the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (MSB with 200,000 specimens). The SNSB IT Center is located in the Botanische Staatssammlung and acts as a central institutional data repository for the Staatliche Naturwissenschaftliche Sammlungen Bayerns. Our research focuses on flowering plants from Europe, South-East Asia, and South America and on fungi, lichens, and algae worldwide with a number of national and international projects. Research products include taxonomic revisions, floristic projects, vegetation surveys, molecular phylogenetics, and biodiversity informatics. The Botanische Staatssammlung is an active member of the international network of herbaria, and each year we send on loan more than 5,000 specimens.
