Fungal Diversity at Monteverde

Standard

Monteverde, a picturesque cloud forest in Costa Rica, is one of the many sites that my OTS course visited this summer. The forest lies 1,440m above sea level and receives a steady supply of clouds every day, creating a unique moist habitat perfect for fungi. Although most of my classmates were exploring the diversity of plants and birds, I was immediately enthralled by the diversity of fungi in the forest.
