Monday, April 29, 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm – Good Fungus, Bad Fungus


John Klironomos, Professor of Biology at University of British Columbia – Okanagan, will speak to the public at the Arnold Arboretum on Monday, April 29, from 7 – 8:30 in the Hunnewell Building, in a program co-sponsored by the Boston Mycological Club. Fungi are found everywhere and play important roles in the environment. Some are decomposers (recyclers), others are parasites and pathogens, and yet others form mutualistic symbioses with plants and animals. In this presentation, the diversity and functioning of fungi in terrestrial ecosystems will be illustrated and discussed.  $10  for members of the sponsoring organizations, $15 nonmembers, and you may register on line at www.arboretum.harvard.edu.
