Fungi are often considered to be mysterious and fearsome creatures. What are they really, and how do they play critical roles in natural ecosystems? What are some of the cutting-edge applications of fungi to produce new technologies? Learn basic lab exercises that you can do in your classroom, and go into the field to learn about the major groups of fungi and how to collect and identify mushrooms. Your local woods and fields will never look the same once you can see the place of fungi and their allies.
This class will use a field guide as its text: Gary H. Lincoff. National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Mushrooms. Edition: 1998. Publisher: Alfred A. Knopf
Facilitator: Martha Bishop
Martha is on the Board of the Ohio Mushroom Society, Instructor of Biology of Fungi at Ohio University
