The New York Botanic Garden, in partnership with has launched a new website to enlist citizen scientists in an effort to transcribe herbarium records for macrofungi! Thousands of specimen images, labels and ledgers from museum collections have been scanned. These contain records information about the where and when a species was found in the past. We need you to help us transcribe that data and make it available for further use in biodiversity and conservation research. Start transcribing today!
