University of Georgia, Julian H. Miller Mycological Herbarium (GAM)

The Julian H. Miller Mycological Herbarium (GAM) is an internationally recognized collection of fungi with an estimated 30,500 specimens that is a unit of the Georgia Museum of Natural History of the University of Georgia. The herbarium collections are especially strong in plant pathogenic ascomycetes; although, the majority of specimens are from Georgia and the southeastern USA. Specimens in the collection date back to the late 1800’s, including exsiccati of J.B. Ellis and M.B. Everhart and A.B. Seymour and F. S. Earle. Other important collections are the Forest Disease Fungi acquired from the USDA Forest Service in Athens, which includes the rust collections of George Hepting and the Coleosporium collection of George Hedgcock, a large collection of Georgia myxomycetes and a collection of Georgia lichens.
