Heads up, Humboldt:
While the county's masking mandate has been lifted, Public Health is still strongly recommending masking indoors in public, social distancing and "avoiding crowds and poorly ventilated spaces." COVID-19 is still with us, so be sure to check the protocols at event venues.

Lecture

Study of Evolutionary Relationships in Fungi

When: Wed., Dec. 18, 7-9 p.m. 2019

This presentation led by Michael Wood, publisher and webmaster for MykoWeb, will review the study of evolutionary relationships (i.e. phylogenetics) in the fungi, and discuss the organizational concept of clades of organisms. In the main part of this presentation Wood will present photos of various clades of fungi, illustrating that closely related fungi can be morphologically distinct. Wood has been an avid mushroom collector, photographer, and taxonomist for over 30 years. He is the co-author of California Mushrooms: The Comprehensive Identification Guide and is currently collaborating on the forthcoming book Mushrooms of the Great Smoky Mountains.
