About Me

Natat Tim

I have been interested in fungi since the camping trips of my childhood.

After attending University, my interest peaked,

and I purchased a pair of microscopes.

My bryological, mycological, and lichenological collections now contain

over 15,000 specimens and I have sent specimens and photographs to herbaria all over the

world. I have and will continue to dedicate my life’s work to the study of nonvascular plants.

I Recently finished my Masters degree in Biology in the McCutcheon Lab at the University of Montana.
