The FUNGA VERACRUZANA collection ilustrate the biodiversity Of fungal species who lives in the state of Veracruz.
The fungal biodiversity in the Veracruz state has been calculated in around of 36, 000 species. In 150 years of research has been recorded around 2, 000 species, and in my opinion could take us more than 300 years list the fungal biodiversity of our state superficially.
