The Mycotheca Universitatis Taurinensis (MUT)
MUT is the fungal collection of the Department of Life Sciences and Systems Biology of the University of Turin. Is one of the most important banks of fungal biodiversity in Italy, and it has a great value from the systematic, ecological and applications point of views.
The Botanical Garden (Orto Botanico)
Its current structure and its collections are the result of almost 300 years of history and work of many botanists : it hosts more than 2500 species from all continents, showing the wonderful forms of biodiversity, adaptations to conditions and climatic changes and uses in all fields of application. In recent years, the Botanical Garden is also the site of multiplication of some rare and endangered species in view of their reintroduction into nature for their conservation.
The University Herbarium is located in Viale Mattioli 25 in Turin.
