Fungi enthusiasts unite! That seems to be the theme of this informative site, produced by the Julian H. Miller, Mycological Herbarium at the University of Georgia. The site, aptly subtitled as Mycology, aims to show how fungi affect daily life. Sections cover frequently asked questions, Mushrooms and Art, Mushroom Stamps, and an outstanding collection of pictures. While the site focuses mostly on Georgia fungi, it also provides coverage of tropic fungi that are pretty impressive. If you’re looking to identify a particular mushroom, the What is A(n) section may be of benefit to you. While I felt the site could have done a more thorough job of covering its topic, there is little to complain about the information actually there. Definitely worth a look-see.
