Timothy J. Baroni, Biological Sciences Department, recently had two papers published from work he participated in with a team analyzing macrofungal biodiversity in Guyana, South America. “The Entolomataceae of the Pakaraima Mountains of Guyana III: New Species of Rhodocybe,” was published in the Dec. 26, 2009, issue of Mycoscience. “The Entolomataceae of the Pakaraima Mountains of Guyana IV: New Species of Calliderma, Paraeccilia and Trichopilus,” appeared in the Dec. 21, 2009, issue of MYCOLOGIA. Both articles were written by team members by T.W. Henkel, M. C. Aime, D. L. Largent and T. J. Baroni. The team was funded by grants awarded to Henkel by the National Science Foundation and the National Geographic Society. Henkel is from Humboldt State University in Northern California, Baroni's alma mater for his B.A. and M.A. degrees.

A third paper, published in late 2009 in Synopsis Fungorum Fungiflora, was written by L. Ryvarden, Aime and Baroni. “Studies in Neotropical Polypores 26. A New Species of Trametes and Revisitation of an Old,” is the result of National Geographic Funding to Baroni in 2007 to study fungal diversity of the Maya Mountains in Belize.
