Sharnoff Image Collection (hb. Sharnoff-photos)

This observation profile harbours a collection of all lichen photographs by professional photographers Steven Sharnoff and Sylvia Duran Sharnoff, which was generously made available with support by Dr. Shirley Tucker. Most of these image profiles are now linked as virtual duplicates to their specimen records at the Lichen Herbarium of the Canadian Museum of Nature (CMN-CANL) and/or the lichen collection of the University of California, Riverside (in transfer to SBBG; UCR(temp)-In transfer).
