The Hidden Forest
April 23, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 7:45 pmFree
Susan Goldhor, PhD, Biologist and President, Boston Mycological Club
6:00 pm Refreshments; 6:30pm Lecture
Although what we see when we walk through the forest are plants, those plants are supported by huge numbers of invisible fungi that feed and water them, protect them from diseases and, finally digest them so that dead wood doesn't clog the world. The plant-fungal connection has a long and fascinating history, and includes stories of cheating, murder, and dysfunctional relationships, as well as our slowly evolving understanding of what's going on in these hidden realms. We promise that you'll never look at the forest in quite the same way after hearing this talk.
