IAQ Website of the Month

Fungal Glossaries, Part I

Each month we publish a newsletter titled IAQ Website of the Month. The excerpt below was originally published in the May 2013 newsletter.

If you take samples for mold, you’re probably familiar with common taxonomical groupings such as Cladosporium and Aspergillus.  But what if you find something more exotic?  Where can you go to learn more about the not-so-common types of mold?

Fortunately, there are several online resources.  In fact, there are so many, I’m making this a two-part newsletter.  This month I’m featuring websites from commercial laboratories and next month I’ll feature other resources.

Below is an alphabetical list of labs that have a fungal glossary or fungal library.

As you go through the links above, you’ll find that some glossaries are better than others.  I recommend referencing several of these sites because they don’t all share the same information.
