The data in this occurrence resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 286 records.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.

The personnel involved in the project:
A comparison between the databases of the UP mushroom research group and PPRI concerning mushroom pathogens was done to identify any isolates that were not yet contained in both collections; these were revived and exchanged. Missing collection data were added as far as possible. The UP database was upgraded by an MSc student who also coordinated plating of cultures for barcoding and addition to the PPRI collection. Each isolate will have data fields containing the following information: o Numbers: PPRI number, UP collection number, any other collection/reference numbers (e.g. in case of foreign specimens) o Identity: genus, species, authors, synonyms o Higher classification: family, order, class etc. o Dates: dates collected, isolated, preserved, deposited o Host / substrate information: host type (= fungus), scientific and common name o Locality details: country, province, town, farm o Collector name, identified by, verified by o Barcoded: Y / N, and barcode reference no. referring to sequence file – to be added For barcoding, the mushroom pathogens (per genus) of the UP collection were plated and checked for viability and purity. This involved plating on required growth media, incubation, checking viability and purity and preservation of voucher cultures under water, under oil, ultra-low freezing as well as freeze drying. The SA isolates were done first, followed by the foreign ones.
