The Chinese government will soon reclaim more than 2,000 samples of Chinese fungi (above,
Trametes hirsuta) that were stored at Cornell University for nearly 70 years.

Chinese graduate student S.C. Teng collected the fungi in China in the 1920s. After Teng's
death in 1970, his family worked to complete his book on Chinese fungi, much of which was
based on the Cornell collection. The book was published in 1996.

China's State Councilor Liu Yandong called Cornells efforts to return the collection to its
native land

                     "a demonstration of the friendship of your university toward the Chinese people."
