The objective herein is to provide the conceptual basis as well as some specifics needed in the development of a mycology laboratory. It is acknowledged that physical constraints and fiscal limitations would have major effects on the development of an ideal mycology laboratory. However, it is possible, over several years, to plan and then gradually develop such a physical facility without the need for an immediate and substantial fiscal out-lay. It must be noted that substantial initial start-up funds for the development of such a laboratory would be needed if there is no physical facility currently in place or an building/area capable of being modified. At times, building modifications may be more expensive and have inherent restrictions which could make the additional cost for a new facility more palatable. Also, a new building offers numerous advantages in design and resultant quality of the laboratories housed therein. Certainly the mycology laboratory will be tied to the other laboratories and the facilities available, but creativity, planning, and flexibility can be exercised so that the mycology component is suitably functional and a quality laboratory.
