Curator of the lichen collection in GZU

    The collection of the lichenological section in the herbarium of the "Institut für Botanik, Universität Graz" (international abbreviation: GZU) comprises roughly 200 000 specimens of lichens and lichenicolous fungi.  3000 - 6000 samples have to be incorporated each year.

    Since Prof. Dr. Josef Poelt (died in 1995) began to establish a lichen-section in herbarium GZU, many valuable collections either from former times (e.g. old exsiccata) or (and especially) from the recent past make GZU one of the most important sources for lichenological studies world-wide.  Especially the herbarium for lichenicolous fungi - which is separated from the main lichen herbarium - belongs to worlds two largest institutions for "fungi lichenicoli" (mainly due to the extensive collections of Dr. Josef Hafellner).

    The following list contains some extra-European countries (or regions) from where several important collections of lichens (and lichen-parasites) are housed in GZU (collectors are put in parenthesis):
