Species Frequencies

This graph shows the total number of macrofungi known from Pt. Reyes as an accumulation of records. Five time points are shown. The first is prior to the first foray, and each time point afterward represents one of the mycoblitz forays. There is some inflection in the curve showing that we might be starting to saturate the number of species. However, this is probably artifactual due to the dry weather on the final foray. The species list is also certainly limited by our taxonomic abilities with some groups being grossly underestimated simply because we do not have the expertise to identify them.
