The National Collection of Wood-Rotting Macro-Fungi (NCWRF) was originally part of the Forest Products Research Laboratory, within the British Government's Department of Science and Industrial Research at Princes Risborough. It became part of the Biodeterioration Section of the Building Research Establishment housed in the Timber Protection Division of the Building Research Station, Garston. It has recently become integrated into the CABI Collection. The NCWRF contains wood destroying fungi, normally basidomycetes, that are important in the biodeterioration of wood.
