Title: Soil samples from Mout Fleming, Allen Hills and the McKelvey Valley to determine the fungal terrestrial biodiversity using cultures and molecular DNA techniques
Description:
Abstract:
Soil samples were taken from Mount Fleming (00-01), Allen Hills (03-04) and the McKelvey Valley (07-08) to ascertain terrestrial biodiversity at the sites, as determined by molecular DNA techniques and/or mycological culturing. The isolated cultures and DNA sequences are maintained either at University of Minnesota or at University of Waikato.
