ZOOM Program: Mushrooms of the Garden with Tom Bruns

This event is no longer on sale.

Saturday January 23

10:00 AM  –  11:00 AM

Botanical gardens are obviously known for their plants, but with plants come fungi. In fact, the diversity of plants and fungi are coupled through their many ecological interactions. The UC Botanical Garden is a great place to showcase the fungal side of life, particularly during the rainy season when mushrooms start to fruit in abundance. This talk will introduce you to some of the fungi seen in the Garden over the last few weeks and will cover the ecological roles that they fill.

About the presenter: Thomas Bruns is a UC Berkeley professor in the Department of Plant & Microbial Biology. He has received multiple teaching awards for his classes on mycology, served as president of the International Mycorrhiza Society from 2015-2017, and received the Distinguished Mycologist Award in 2018 from the Mycological Society of America for his career achievements in the field.
